GA4LE’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19
We hope this message finds you well and not personally impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. These are uncertain and anxiety-inducing times as we all work to make the best decisions for our members, attendees, and communities. GA4LE has been monitoring COVID-19 advisories to inform all our decisions impacting GA4LE meetings, events, and conferences.
Based on what is known at this time, the GA4LE board has made the difficult, but necessary, decision to CANCEL the 2020 Summer Conference. When opening registration in March, we were hopeful the conference would be held as usual, unfortunately it has not worked out to do that safely with the number of attendees, programming, and agenda our event maintains.
The association has two options, cease operations for 2020 due to the pandemic and associated restrictions or continue operations and shift to a virtual platform, develop additional content and maintain operations until it’s safe to meet in person again. The board has chosen the latter and will continue to operate the remainder of this year, providing content, activities, and sponsorship benefits. The primary difference being the conference will not happen in 2020.

2021 SUMMER CONFERENCE REGISTRATION UPDATE
Registration will stay open through next year. We will honor all current registrations and continue to accept new sponsorships, exhibitors, and registrations up until the conference next year.
The exhibit hall is over 65% sold at this time and we expect that number to continue climbing through the end of the year. VIEW EXHIBIT LAYOUT
Our new registration system is in place and working extremely well. This is a completely new system however so please take your time and go through everything carefully. Once you submit at the end of the process, you cannot go back and make changes.
***If you receive our emails you should have a profile in the new system – even if it’s just your email address. Please request a new password at the start of the registration process to login and complete your profile and complete the registration. If that doesn’t work, just create a new profile.
SPONSORSHIPS & REGISTRATION
This is a TWO step process, similar to the process used in year’s past. You MUST sign up for your annual sponsorship before registering for the conference and selecting booth space.
The links for registration are:
- School Personnel Registration
- Annual Sponsorship Registration
(must register for Annual Sponsorship before registering for conference through link below)
- Conference Registration
Please contact our association administrator Ashley Dale with any inquiries or related questions.
CLASSROOM OF THE FUTURE | SUMMER CONFERENCE
CLASSROOM OF THE FUTURE | SUBMITTALS DUE APRIL 30
GA4LE is seeking submittals from vendors and suppliers to display an innovative and high-tech classroom of the future as a tool for exploration and discovery during our conference. The spaces designated for outfitting are in a prime, centrally located in the exhibit hall.
Our intention is to display ideas, technologies and products available for use in outfitting classrooms of the future, not to provide a separate marketing location for the vendors and/or companies. Each company will be allowed to place discreet signage identifying the manufacturer and/or provider of the material in the space.
All team members must be the Georgia Chapter of the Association for Learning Environments Annual Sponsors and must have an exhibit booth space in the exhibit area.
