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?

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.
