NAPT Annual Summit

In 2014 NAPT celebrates our 40th year leading, supporting and developing world-class professionals who provide safe and efficient pupil transportation for our nation's children. Our 40th Annual Summit: Driving Innovation took place November 8-11 in Kansas City, MO. 

The annual NAPT Conference & Trade Show is consistently recognized as the premier school transportation conference in the nation - and it's for good reason. Each year, over the course of just 4 days, we offer over 3-dozen different workshops on an array of important topics – like managing human resources; establishing and evaluating Key Performance Indicators and benchmarks; writing an effective bid; managing liability by mitigating risk; and developing an effective preventive maintenance plan. You can also choose from more than a dozen different courses from the NAPT Professional Development Series, the most comprehensive and practical educational program ever created for the school bus industry.

Along with providing cutting edge curriculum, the event also serves as the showcase for the newest products and the latest technology the industry has to offer. The NAPT Trade Show is the biggest and best gathering of school bus manufacturers and school transportation product suppliers; the variety of products and services on display each year under one roof is amazing.

The annual NAPT Conference & Trade Show is called "The Summit" because it is a wonderful opportunity to meet school transportation professionals from across the nation. The networking opportunities at the conference are virtually limitless.

Join us November 6-10, 2015 in Richmond, VA for our 41st Annual Summit!
