We wish we could connect in person.  However due to health and safety concerns, our conference will be virtual this year and it is going to be amazing!

Join CFTEA’s 23rd annual leadership conference for a day and a half of development, collaborating with learning and development peers and board/career growth.  In the past year, CFTEA has developed new educational career paths, begun working on our student experience with our new learning management system and created a rich online experience at our website.  This time is an investment in board training and discussions related to the future of learning and development.

There are no costs associated with registering and attending this virtual event.

Important:  Thursday is required and reserved for board member training.  Friday is open to any board member, council member, key supporter or partner.
