We Invite You to Our Conference

To our continuing education and workforce development communities, welcome to 2022 and to the National Council for Continuing Education and Training.  With this communication… we invite you to participate in our 51st National Conference event next month in Austin, Texas.  This is, without question, the best possible vehicle for understanding the value of membership in NCCET. 

The NCCET Conference includes safety protocols required by the state of Texas and the conference center.  We are also implementing badge ribbons to allow you to maintain the social distancing that you require to feel safe.  Meanwhile we have been working until this late hour to compile a program of plenary and breakout sessions that is worth the extra effort required to attend this event.   We acknowledge the extra effort in gaining approval from your colleges, extra effort related to travel, and extra effort to ensure your personal comfort.   For that reason, we have invested extra efforts on our part to make the information provided well worth your effort.   

You will be afforded every opportunity to visit with our outstanding array of exhibitors who will join us on Day 1 as we all meet with some of our new Regional Directors and Area Managers.  They will then be featured throughout the conference at the NCCET Exhibit Hall which this year will be proudly displayed in the Main Ball room along with all of our meals and plenary sessions.   

You do not want to miss those outstanding plenary sessions from industry leaders that do not present at each and every industry conference event.   Don’t miss:

  • The Nationwide Apprenticeship Model | Stephen Dodd, IBM.
  • Non-Credit to Credit Pathways | Dr. Richard Rhodes, Austin Community College District, AACC
  • Behind the Walls – Our Forgotten Workforce | Featuring the Warden of the Lockhart Correctional Facility and a Success Story from a formerly incarcerated student.
  • The presentation of the NCCET Exemplary Program Awards for 2022
  • Equitable Outcomes for Tomorrow – a panel discussion featuring leading voices from NCCET and our industry 

Similarly, our breakout sessions have been selected to give you challenging choices of how to get the greatest value tailored for your experience.   Once again, NCCET will provide programs aligned with our primary value proposition.
