  • Educational sessions and keynotes from state, regional, and nationally acclaimed speakers and presenters
  • Access to over 80 top exhibitors in educational products and services
  • Breakfast on Day 2 and 3
  • Lunch on Day 1 and 2
  • Access to the LEAD Cyber Cafe

My company needs a Tax ID number before submitting payment. What is your ID number?

The FEIN/Tax ID number is: 62-6001445. A copy of our W-9 is available upon request.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes. We accept major credit cards.

Is TASL credit available?

Yes. Participants may earn up to 7 hours of TASL credit. More information about how to earn credit is available under the TASL Credit page.

I didn't print off my confirmation page to mail with my payment or Purchase Order. Should I register again?

No. Simply make sure your name is listed on the check or purchase order. Or, you can fill out the form and print it off, but there is no need to register a second time if you registered and received a confirmation page the first time.

I cannot attend, and would like to send someone else in my place. How can I do that?

If at all possible, please call the conference office and let them know you would like to make a substitution. Otherwise, they can go to the Changes/Substitutions booth at the conference and make a subsitution there.

How do I know my registration went through?

The a confirmation page will appear displaying the information you filled in on the form, and you will receive an email confirmation. If you continue to have difficulties, please call or email the LEAD office.

I am a vendor and would like to present at this year's conference. Are there opportunities?

Vendors may partner with a school or educational agency in order to showcase a successfully tested method, program, or project. The focus of the session should be about the school and their use and reactions to the method, program, or project. The focus should NOT be a "sales pitch". Vendors presenting at the 2013 LEAD conference are also required to purchase booth space in the Exhibit Hall.

My registration fee has already been paid, but I cannot attend. Do you give refunds?

No. The LEAD conference no longer issues refunds on paid registrations. You may, however, send someone else in your place as a registration substitution. Contact the conference office for more information.
