First Time Attendees


When you first arrive at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center make sure to check in with our registration desk, located in the hotel convention center area. There you can pick up your convention bag and answers to any questions you may have from sessions, to how to use our convention app to where things are in the hotel.


It will not. We ask people to indicate their session preferences so we can make sure to have enough space for you in our most popular sessions. However, we cannot hold space for you so we still recommended getting there early.


The Pre-Convention workshops are sessions held on Saturday and Sunday before the official opening of convention. There is an additional fee which includes a continental breakfast at morning workshops and beverages and snacks at afternoon workshops.


AWHONN staff and members are here to help you during convention. You can go to the Host Committee booth staffed by local AWHONN members or the registration desk. Also all staff are wearing badges indicating them so you can ask one of us at any time.


Snacks are provided in the exhibit hall and at different receptions listed in your final program. The Ernest N. Morial Convention Center provides also has many great places to each including xxxxx.


The Host Committee booth is a great place to start as they know the area best. There is also a place in your Convention App for local area information under the Infobooth tab.


To complete your evaluations log-in to the convention gateway during or after the convention at your home, hotel, or office. Attendees must complete an evaluation for each session for which they are applying for CNE credit, as well as for the overall convention. You must attend the full session(s) for which they wish to receive CNE credit in their entirety. No partial credit may be awarded.

Upon completion of the required evaluations, attendees will be able to print their transcript and certificate. All evaluations must be completed by August 31, 2017 in order for CNE to be awarded.


All registered convention attendees can attend the President’s Party. Please don’t forget your badge!
