NTI instructions

Our Sponsors are:
Excited
We have some tips on
what to expect each day
and how to make sure
you have the best
experience.
We want you to be happy
and enjoy NTI!
Happy
Get to your first choice early!
When the seats are all full,
they are full!
Your session host can’t
bring in more chairs.
Your session host can’t let
you sit on the floor.
When the session
host tells you the
session is full, it might
cause you to feel
frustrated or be
disappointed.
Disappointed
Frustrated
If you can’t go to your first choice,
go to the next option.
Count to Ten
Slow Deep
Breaths
If you are having a hard
time with managing
your feelings, please
use an emotional
regulation strategy and
don’t take it out on the
session host!
The session hosts feel sad
(and a little scared)
when they have to turn
people away.
You can get help with
any question at the
registration desk.
You can also get help from the
session host. Session hosts are
identified by their red clipboard.
Session hosts will sign your
CEU form. Don’t ask the
presenter!
For those who registered to
receive CEU’s , the packet is at
the registration desk
Please go to the session
“New to NTI and the Pyramid
Model?: Let’s Talk!” on
Wednesday morning.
Confused
It will make the whole
conference much more
meaningful if you have
attended that important
session.
We love feedback and
feedback improves the
conference.
You will be attending a lot of
sessions, please complete
your evaluation for each
session in the break before
your next session.
When you turn your
evaluation in at the end
of the meeting, you will
get a USB drive with a
link to ALL the session
handouts to take home!
The Vinoy offers
discounted
self-parking ($8/day)
for NTI participants.
Go to NTI registration desk to pick up
your parking validation sticker.

We provide breakfast and lunch!
Get your breakfast outside of your
meeting room. Lunch is on Plaza
Level, Fred’s Cellar or in the Palm
Court Foyer.
You can eat your meals at tables
inside or outside; you might go to
your room, or you might even go to
the park!
However, we ask that if
you eat in conference
rooms, you please…
Clean Up!
The workshop attendees
will be much happier if their
table is not a mess.
