But, it’s not all work …

Boston is known as “America’s Walking City.” Even though it is one of the largest cities in the country, its accessibility is unparalleled. And while it’s easy to see the sights on foot, Boston also has an excellent public transportation system.

Come join your NJEA colleagues, experience historic sites such as Old North Church; Bunker Hill Monument; Paul Revere House; Boston Harbor; the Trinity Church at Copley Square; the African Meeting House and so much more. Walk the Freedom Trail, experience the re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party, sail on the Charles River, and enjoy the New England cuisine at the Boston Harbor.

The New Jersey Delegation will be housed at the Boston Marriott Copley Place in the heart of downtown Boston. Delegates will be expected to arrive on June 30 and will be treated to a gala dinner celebration. The Delegation will meet on July 1 and the RA will commence on July 2.

A portion of delegate expenses will be reimbursed as determined by the NJEA Delegate Assembly.
