What is the format of the Convention? 

The 2023 CCCC Annual Convention will be held in person. CCCC seeks to uphold the experience of the place-based Convention and the important affordances of CCCC members learning together and from one another. #4C23 will include a virtual option for those unable to attend in person. Digital access will comprise live streaming of the Opening General Session, All-Attendee Session, Annual Business Meeting and Awards Presentation, and several promoted sessions. Additionally, up to 75 on-demand sessions will be available for persons unable to travel. Those who register to attend in person will also have access to the digital content. Please note that workshops will be in person only. Also note that Saturday-only registrants will not have access to virtual content.

How do I access the Convention app and web portal?

The Whova app can be used in a similar way to the print program, which you will receive during onsite registration. Both resources provide access to the schedule of sessions, a Convention map, and other key information that can enhance your #4C23 experience. Learn more about the Whova App and Web Portal. To automatically log in to #4C23, please make sure to use the email you used when registering for the event. TYCA Conference Attendees: The CCCC Convention App will not include information for TYCA events. #4C23 Virtual Attendees: On-demand content will be available starting the morning of Wednesday, February 15, and access to live streamed sessions will be located in the app and web portal.

Bringing Guests to the CCCC Convention

If you plan to bring a partner or dependent onsite to the CCCC Convention, please contact as soon as possible. All attendees, including guests, will need to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID 19 per the health and safety policy.

Early-bird registration rates will end at 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, January 18, 2023. 

Will registration be available onsite? 

Attendees will be able to register online until the start of the Convention and onsite in Chicago. 

Are there discounted rates? 

CCCC offers highly discounted rates for students at $65 and for part-time, retired, or veteran faculty at $105. 

Is there funding available? 

Yes! Please visit the Funding Opportunities page for details. 

Why are the virtual and in-person registration rates the same? 

Costs to produce the CCCC Annual Convention are significant when in one format. Expanding the access to both in-person and digital expands costs exponentially. Doing so allows us to provide the opportunity to attend and learn to as many people as possible, but it is not without a financial burden. CCCC works hard to keep registration fees as low as possible, including lower than other teaching organizations with similar in-person-only events. In an effort to continue this commitment, the costs are the same regardless of which format attendees choose to attend. This also means that attendees can change registration types in the event that plans change.  

The CCCC Annual Convention is designed to be a robust in-person experience, and we are stretching to continue with digital components developed during the height of the pandemic. We continue to lean into innovation. In a time of such a challenge, we are working to provide invigorating professional learning in an inclusive way for as many circumstances as possible. 


How do I become a CCCC member?

What is CCCC’s Health and Safety Policy? 

Please see NCTE Event Policies for information on the Health and Safety policies. 

Am I required to be vaccinated against Covid-19? 

Yes, please see NCTE Event Policies for additional information. 

What other protocols will CCCC put in place related to the pandemic? 

CCCC will continue to monitor and follow protocols that comply with any applicable local public health requirements and that are consistent with then-prevailing public health standards, as issued by the CDC (or other relevant public health authorities). More information will be available on these policies as the 2023 CCCC Annual Convention and TYCA Conference approaches.
