NSTA Meetings


The National School Transportation Association hosts quarterly board and committees meetings to carry out the Association’s progressive strategic plan.  These four meetings have a unique mission and serve as the foundation for members to enrich the professional relationships behind the yellow school bus industry.

NSTA Annual Meeting & Convention

In person meetings and conferences build stronger, more meaningful business relationships. During the COVID-19 pandemic, business collaboration tools became more complex, and NSTA adapted to that climate over the past year to build out a virtual platform for contractors to continue to “meet”. But as the challenges of the pandemic continue to wane, it becomes critical to rebuild business connections. When it comes to building solid connections, nothing is more effective than face-to-face interaction. NSTA events provide you an opportunity to grow your business relationships through shared experiences with fellow industry professionals. Looking ahead, we are excited to announce registration is open for the 2021 NSTA Annual Meeting and Convention that will be held at The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from Sunday, July 25, 2021 to Wednesday, July 28, 2021. The NSTA AMC offers educational sessions, as well as other professional development and networking opportunities for attendees. Evening events at AMC also provide an opportunity to explore the host city, and we also host the annual NSTA Awards and Installation Dinner. Don’t miss this opportunity to stay on top of the latest industry trends, and hear from our presenters out on one of the most effective ways to invest in your business. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER TODAY for the 2021 NSTA Annual Meeting and Convention. Plenty of sponsorship opportunities will be available, so check back for details!

NSTA Fall Meeting

The 2021 NSTA Fall Meeting is normally held in conjunction with the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) annual conference plans in November. Last year, this event was cancelled, and we are collaborating with our industry partners at NASDPTS and NAPT to plan for potential dates this fall. Please check back here for more information, or better yet give us a call we always love to hear from our members!  

NSTA Midwinter Meeting

The 2021 NSTA Midwinter Meeting was recently held in Safety Harbor, Florida, and it was live streamed for those who could not attend in-person. Broadcasting virtually was a great opportunity for our Association members to gather, network and exchange important information as we continue to navigate a post-COVID world. Plans have begun for the 2022 NSTA Midwinter Meeting which will be hosted in Key Largo, Florida on January 23-25 2022. Please check back here, later this year, for more information on the meeting schedule, room block, and sponsorship opportunities.

NSTA Capitol Hill Bus-In

The annual 2021 NSTA Capitol Hill Bus-In, normally held each spring, has been postponed due to ongoing challenges with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as Capitol Hill security concerns. NSTA leadership and Prime Policy Group are collaborating to evaluate the potential for an alternate date for the Bus-In this year. As you know, this annual event remains the centerpiece of our federal advocacy efforts and allows us to engage our representatives in Washington, D.C., so they understand and recognize the issues that face the school transportation industry. Now, more than ever, we need to present a unified voice that highlights the benefits of private school bus contracting. We look forward to possibly setting a new date for the 2021 NSTA Capitol Hill Bus-In date as soon as possible when final dates are confirmed, we will provide details regarding the schedule, as well as registration information.

Please feel free to reach out to the NSTA team at info@yellowbuses.org, if you require information on these events, or any other issue of importance to you.
