2022 NSTA Fall Meeting

Key Largo, FL

Join us at the 2022 NSTA Fall Conference!

Each fall, NSTA hosts a live meeting that is typically coordinated with conferences and trade shows of related student transportation organizations. This year’s fall event will be an NSTA Fall Conference – a stand-alone event in Key Largo, FL from Tuesday, November 8 - Thursday, November 10, 2022. We look forward to an exciting list of industry updates, as well as our first ever "Don't Talk Politics at Dinner" Dinner - a Post Congressional Midterm Election Summary – scheduled for the evening of November 9th. Also, the NSTA Fall Conference will play host to several social events, where attendees can network with other yellow bus professionals in a relaxed atmosphere with beautiful scenery.
