About Flex Pass Packages

If you can’t send everyone on your team for four full days, then the Flex Pass Package is the most affordable professional development around. Purchase a Flex Pass Package of 10 single-day registrations (good Thursday-Saturday) and split the registrations between your team. For only $1,850 (10 passes, $185 each), your team will get access to the biggest special education event of the year.

This is how it works—for $1,850, you’ll get 10 single day passes good on Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday (not Wednesday). The passes may be used by 10 team members or in multiples as designated by the purchaser (i.e., one person can come all three days requiring 3 of the 10 passes; 10 individuals can come on one day, 10 passes used; or any combination as long as the total tickets does not exceed the number purchased). Flex Pass Package registration does not include convention workshop registration; a separate fee for workshops applies. 

Flex Pass Packages are available until January 8, 2020.  CEC will collect a roster of Flex Pass Package registrants after December 16, 2019.
