Conference Registration – Now Open!
After two years of hosting our annual conference in a virtual format, we’re excited to announce we’ll be back, live and in person, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the National Résumé Writers Association.
The NRWA is planning for a big event in the Big Easy! In addition to our diverse educational programming, we will be bringing our conference to life with two featured keynote speakers, the return of an in-depth preconference event, and many opportunities for networking.
There will be plenty of time to get to know colleagues during our jazz-infused 25th anniversary celebration event Sunday evening in the courtyard at the Royal Sonesta. Later that evening, we’ve made it easy to schedule dinner with our dine-around sign-up option, or you’re free to explore the French Quarter on your own. We’ve also planned a choice of two optional excursions for Monday evening, including a dinner cruise on the Creole Queen or a two-hour walking tour of the French Quarter’s most infamous and eerie locations with the world-renowned Haunted History Tour company.
Start planning for an unforgettable conference experience. Hosted by the Royal Sonesta New Orleans on Bourbon Street, our 2022 event takes us to the heart of NOLA’s vibrant French Quarter. Click here to make your hotel reservations.

Preconference event kicks off Sunday, September 18th at 8:00 a.m., CT, with a hands-on, interactive workshop led by award-winning resume writer Marie Plett, who will be walking us through a step-by-step process to design graphically infused, ATS friendly resumes. (Additional sign-up and fee required.)
General conference programming kicks off with our first Keynote on September 18 at 1:00 p.m., CT and ends with our closing Keynote on Tuesday September 20 by 2:00 p.m., CT.
Plan your travels accordingly as you won’t want to miss anything!
Early-bird conference registration is now open and runs through May 31.
