24th Annual New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Conference

Conference Fees and Early-Bird Dates for Attendees

Fees Meals

The Board and Planning Committees of NJEPA look forward to seeing you all again in 2023! 

NJEPA strives to keep the NJEPA conference the most affordable program on the East Coast! With the new times we are experiencing, we are forced to adjust our fees slighty this year. However, you will see that we have been able to add amenities for your week in Atlantic City. We will continue to have the largest selection of trainings and breakouts for emergency managers (public and private), first responders and others who work so hard in the disaster and preparedness fields.

Hard Rock Casino Hotel, offers the one of the lowest price on luxury overnight rooms for conference goers. Please review the accommodations and opportunities available for overnight stay by clicking on our Hotel Information page.

The Conference Luncheon will be included with your registration this year, but we will be charging a nominal fee to attend the Awards and Networking Dinner Reception. The $25 fee does not cover the full cost of this event, but in addition to providing you an inexpensive dining opportunity, it will help us provide accurate attendee counts, thereby helping to control costs.

We are also looking to expand our breaks and other meal offerings during the week and continue with our Vendor Reception. Coupling these events with the low cost hotel accomodations there are many reasons to continue your conference experience after the normal work day ends. Please keep an eye on the conference Agenda (under development) for further information on these events.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Atlantic City again this year! - Matthew Steinthal, President
