A Special Note about NTS and COVID-19

Currently, the Military Child Education Coalition® (MCEC®) is moving ahead with plans to hold the 2020 National Training Seminar (NTS), July 27-29. Please know that the health and safety of our attendees are of utmost importance and we understand many Americans are concerned about the spread of Novel Coroavirus 2019 (COVID-19). We will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation, including guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We look forward to seeing all of you in Washington D.C. for the 2020 NTS.

  • In the instance that MCEC® cancels this year’s NTS, you will receive a full refund for registration fees paid.
  • If you book your hotel room within the MCEC room block at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel, your reservation can be cancelled by 11:59 pm three days prior to arrival to avoid a penalty of one night's room and tax. 
  • We recommend that you check with airline carriers on current cancellation and change fee policies prior to booking your airline ticket. 

Please check back often for updates on our website.
