New for 2019: CPETS Mobile App!

* Attention Smartphone Users *  To enhance your CPETS experience — especially learning and networking with fellow PEs — we have developed a new mobile conference app for iOS and Android mobile devices. The CPETS app is built on the mobile platform.  To learn about the app, go to our CPETS app microsite at to install the CPETS app. Follow the instructions there to install Attendify and find the “Chesapeake PETS” event; then use the event passcode CPETS76xx [case sensitive] to officialy register as an attendee.  ATTENTION: the app is in beta mode and will officialy “launch” before the CPETS conference at your Pre-PETS sessions with your District. Not all of the data or schedules is accurate or complete at this time — but please go ahead and join and complete your personal profile.

There is a Help Guide inside the app. For a quick user guide to using an Attendify app, another resource is:

Questions about the app? Please email, and a member of the PR Promotions/Tech Team will respond and assist. 

(NOTE: If you do not have a smartphone, you can view and access the conference speakers and other C-PETS info on the microsite; more on this soon..)
