The Conference is One Month Away! Are You Registered?

I hope that everyone had a relaxing summer and that you are off to a great start of the 2017-18 school year. The CCTM Conference Committee has worked diligently all summer preparing for our September 14-15, 2017 conference.

This year's conference will be fresh and new in many ways! First, we have moved locations to the University of Denver campus. Additionally, we have several featured speakers, both at the local and national level, including Annie Fetter, Amanda Jansen, Wendy Ward Hoffer, Lisa Bejarano, and more! We've kept our great exhibit hall, local speakers, and Thursday leader and teacher pre-sessions, as well as our Thursday evening awards ceremony. Don't hesitate - register now at We hope to see everyone there, and bring a colleague or a group with you for support and focused learning after the conference.
