Affiliate Leadership Meeting - National Council of Teachers of English

There will be a strong focus on updated governance practices and new policies. NCTE wants to do all we can to help affiliates avoid costly circumstances that take a deep toll on both the leaders and the affiliate. Attendees will also think with NCTE and the Standing Committee on Affiliates (SCOA) on ideas to reimagine what our network does and might offer in the future. We anticipate this will be a generative meeting!

We encourage affiliates to send as many leaders to this biennial meeting as is possible. Attendance at this meeting is an investment in your affiliate’s future as well as in your individual growth and leadership. The work we’ll do in Washington, DC, will set the stage for your leaders’ and your affiliate’s continued growth and vitality. See below for registration and meeting details. Please email with questions.
