NCTE is writing to you today with an important update regarding the 2021 NCTE Annual Convention, scheduled to take place November 18–21.
the beginning of this year, we have been preparing for a hybrid Convention with a robust online experience, continuing to build upon the award-winning virtual 2020 NCTE Annual Convention. Accessibility to the Convention for literacy educators, regardless of
travel clearance and/or other COVID-19 implications, has been central to us from the start.
NCTE takes COVID-19 very seriously. We continue to research and discuss the implications of the Delta variant, particularly
as related to our 2021 Annual Convention.
As of now, registration will open later this week, for online registration only. We recognize the need for time to secure and apply funding for
registration fees; the cost of the online and in-person Annual Convention experiences are the same this year.
A final decision on the in-person Convention will be made in the relatively near future, noting that this
is a rapidly changing situation. If the in-person component of this year’s Convention is determined to be advisable, registered attendees wishing to convert their registration from online to in person may do so without a fee.
We look forward to an exciting announcement about our 2021 Annual Convention General Session speakers later this week. Thank you for your understanding and for your patience as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic together.
If you have any questions at all regarding this year's Convention, please contact our #NCTE21 staff team at NCTEevents@ncte.org.
