2024 Annual Conference

2024 Northeast Conference

February 22-24, 2024 New York Hilton Midtown

The 2024 conference theme is Our Butterfly Effect: Creating a Lasting ImpactIt is time to consider what we have learned over the past 70 years of the Northeast Conference.  How has our conference had an impact on the field? What have students learned as a result of teachers coming to the annual conference? Our story is an important one for the field.  How do professional conferences make us stronger teachers? How can we help promote teaching for proficiency?  This conference theme is designed to bring us all back to the essence of why we teach: the learners and how we can best support them and their learning.  Please consider submitting a session proposal, today!

We welcome proposals for three-hour or six-hour (full day) pre-conference workshops (Thursday February 22, 2024); 60 minute professional learning sessions (Friday and Saturday February 23-24, 2024) as well as #techlab (shorter tech tip-focused presentations) and Research Roundtable presentations (shorter, current research-focused sharing).


Proposal submission window closes July 15, 2023
