Preconference Only

You may register for Preconference Only or combine Preconference registration with a Single Day or Two Day registration. You must select the Preconference for which you are registering. Registering for Preconference Only still allows you access to the three virtual Preconference sessions offered on Wednesday. NJLA preconferences are offered on a cost-recovery basis and may be cancelled due to adverse events beyond the control of NJLA or if there is insufficient registration. Registration for both a morning preconference session (10:00-1:00) and an afternoon preconference session (2:00-5:00) includes a boxed lunch. If you have already registered but would like to add a preconference session, please email the NJLA Office.

Luncheon Options

NJLA provides a variety of pre-paid luncheon options during Thursday & Friday of Conference. The President’s Welcome Luncheon (Thursday), the Garden State Book Award Luncheon (Friday), and the College & University Luncheon (Friday) are a flat $35 fee for a seated hot lunch. You can select your meal choice as Chicken, Vegetarian, or Dietary Restriction; if you select Dietary Restriction, a member of the Conference Committee will reach out for more information about your specific restrictions. Feast on This: Show & Make (Thursday) is an additional pre-paid luncheon option for $22, which provides a cold buffet of salad, sandwiches, and dessert for all attendees. In addition, there is an option for you to pre-purchase a boxed lunch along with your registration for either or both days of the full conference. For the boxed luhch, you can select your meal choice as chicken or tuna on a Kaiser roll or veggie wrap; there are no customized options. If you have already registered for Conference but would like to add a lunch ticket, please email the NJLA Office.
