Earlier this fall, we sent notifications to accepted presenters for the 2022 CCCC Annual Convention and shared that a decision on an in-person event would be made as soon as possible. After over a year and a half spent living and working in a global pandemic, we looked forward to being together this March in Chicago, Illinois. Unfortunately, despite our diligent efforts to plan and hold an in-person gathering, COVID-19’s continuing developments have created a situation that prevents us from having the original event as planned. This is not where we wanted to be this winter.
In 2022, we will once again need to hold the annual gathering online. We share the disappointment of CCCC and TYCA members across the country who look forward to an in-person event for the networking and community it offers. In 2023, we look forward to gathering in Chicago in person, as originally envisioned, February 15–18, 2023.
The CCCC Executive Committee voted to transition to an entirely virtual event. The 2022 TYCA Conference will be fully virtual as well. Registration information is available on the CCCC Convention website. We plan to open registration in January.
Because our vision for this year’s event includes an engaging online experience, CCCC has already been building upon the success of last year’s Convention experience. Of specific note is that all concurrent sessions, workshops, engaged learning experiences, posters, and individual presentations that are accepted to the program will be given a session on the program. The NCTE events team will be reaching out soon requesting presenters to accept their position on the program. This communication will include the presentation format assigned to each session (Live, Prerecorded, or On-Demand). Please watch for this message, as it will request quick response with the Convention less than three months away.
In the coming weeks, we will provide further details for Special Interest Group and Standing Group business meetings, following a similar format to last year’s Convention. Additionally, we are extending registration until March 30, 2022, to allow for post-event registration, and we will provide access to most archived #CCCC22 and #TYCA22 sessions for 90 days after the event. Notifications to 2022 TYCA Conference proposers will be sent soon.
If you have any questions at all regarding the 2022 CCCC Annual Convention or 2022 TYCA Conference, please contact our staff team at CCCCevents@ncte.org.
