Event Description

The UPCEA Annual Conference is the most significant assembly of thought leaders and practitioners today in the field of professional, continuing, and online education. Join us March 24-26, 2025 in Denver, CO for engaging keynote speakers, high-energy concurrent sessions, and plentiful networking opportunities.

The Annual Conference convenes deans and other senior university leaders, key staff, and teams responsible for the management, administration, and growth of professional, continuing, and online education programs. Attendees have access to targeted sessions spanning the top areas of practice in our field (aligned with UPCEA's seven professional Networks), led by higher education experts and colleagues.

Attendees will also find targeted sessions on the most pressing topics in the field today - including federal policy, finance and operations, marketing and enrollment management, instructional design, noncredit programs, alternative credentialing, and more.

Health and Safety
By registering for this event, you agree to abide by the host hotel's, local, state, and UPCEA's health and safety guidelines in effect as of the conference dates.

UPCEA recommends that attendees be up to date on their vaccinations, and wear a properly fitting face mask during UPCEA events at all public indoor spaces. Conference attendees are reminded to be respectful of individual  choices made by fellow attendees, UPCEA staff, and others at the conference. These guidelines are subject to change at any point, and attendees will be notified if any additional requirements are implemented. 

COVID-19 has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization and is extremely contagious. UPCEA cannot guarantee that attendees will not become infected with COVID-19 as a result of participation in the conference. By registering for the conference, I:

acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19; • voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending UPCEA events which exposure or infection may come from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, UPCEA employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families; • acknowledge that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death; and  • hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless UPCEA, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from any injury to me resulting from being exposed to or infected by COVID-19 in connection with my attendance at UPCEA events (including claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of UPCEA, its employees, agents, and representatives).

All registration cancellation and refund requests must be made in writing.  Full refunds will be granted for cancellations received by November 18, 2024.  A refund of the conference fee, minus a $200 administrative fee, will be given for cancellations received between November 19, 2024 – February 24, 2025.  No refunds or credits will be granted for cancellations after February 24, 2025. Please submit all requests to Jacqueline Romero at jromero@upcea.edu. Anyone who is registered but cannot attend may send a substitute from the same organization. Refunds will not be given for no-shows.  Please note that all cancellation fees apply even if the initial invoice has yet to be paid.

Conference Photo Policy
Registrants of the 2025 UPCEA Annual Conference agree to allow UPCEA and its official photographer to photograph them in the context of the conference. Footage captured by the official photographer may be used in future print and electronic promotional and archival materials. For questions or concerns, please call 202.659.3130 or email info@upcea.edu.

Affiliated Events Policy
The association has gone to great lengths and expense to negotiate and contract for a reduced room rate at conference hotels. That rate is based upon the projected attendance at the meeting. If corporate member and nonmember attendees elect to stay at other hotels, it subjects the association to attrition penalties that can cause significant financial loss to the association. We count on our corporate community to support the association, and one of the ways to do that is to honor our efforts to secure a sufficiently large room block at a reduced rate at a first class hotel/conference venue.   

For these reasons, corporate member and nonmember attendees are prohibited from holding any meetings (briefings, seminars, etc.) within a 25-mile radius, targeting professional, continuing, and online leaders in higher education during the scheduled hours of UPCEA events unless otherwise negotiated and scheduled with and by UPCEA. Any such meeting occurring within 36 hours before or after the UPCEA conference must be coordinated with UPCEA and, space permitting, be held at the conference hotel.  This policy helps ensure that the association’s contracted obligations to the hotel for guest rooms and food and beverage minimums are met, which is essential for the financial health of the association and its members. If UPCEA cannot find space for the corporate member or nonmember attendee’s event at the contracted hotel, we will work to help find alternative space.  In no circumstances, however, is it permissible for a corporate member or nonmember attendee to contract a separate hotel block, either at the conference hotel or elsewhere. 

UPCEA reserves the right to prohibit corporate member and nonmember attendees who violate this policy from exhibiting or participating at UPCEA events.
