- To report an emergency from the RA floor, use the red phones located at the entrance of the RA.
- For medical emergencies in the RA, provide the closest microphone number and display the orange flag located at the podium to further assist responders in locating the emergency.

Posted here upon publication, this area contains the entire 2016 delegate registration packet for interested delegates, who may choose from among contents to download to your device in advance of your travel to Washington, DC.
Delegates have the option to be “green” using online content instead of the traditional printed packet. Pre-registered green delegates have a letter “G” printed on their mailed delegate badge and receive green ribbons to indicate their participation plus a copy of the RA program booklet. During registration on July 2-3 any interested delegate not designated as “green” may check in with NEA staff to change status. All delegates are encouraged to view and/or download the contents you need to your personal device before arriving in Washington. Don’t wait till you get to the convention center—plan ahead!
