About the Annual Conference

The NCCET Conference is hosted by a different U.S. city in the Fall and welcomes between 250 and 300 attendees each year.  Both new and experienced professionals are encouraged to attend. Participants come from across the United States and represent a wide range of positions and roles within their institutions.  This dynamic event encourages individuals to learn, share, expand their networks, and embrace the exciting and dynamic field of workforce and continuing education.
