Speak at the 2019 CCTM Annual Conference

Energize your peers by speaking at the 2019 CCTM Annual Conference! To submit a proposal, the process is simple: create a title, a 2-5 sentence description, and indicate the audience you’d like to reach. Proposals must be submitted by Friday, March 15. Do it today!


This year’s annual conference will again be held during late summer, just in time to engage educators in professional development before the start of the 2019-2020 school year. The dates for this year’s conference are Monday and Tuesday, July 29-30.

By speaking at this year’s conference, you will empower others with the knowledge, wisdom, and connections to be better teachers of mathematics. You’ll join our keynote speaker, Max Ray-Riek from Illustrative Mathematics, who is the author of Powerful Problem Solving and is formerly of the Math Forum. Other speakers include the leaders of our Monday workshops, Melissa Boston and Sara VanDerWerf. Melissa Boston is a Professor at Duquesne University and is co-author of the Taking Action series and the Principles to Action Toolkit. Sara VanDerWerf is a math consultant, a 25-year veteran educator in Minneapolis Public Schools, and the former president of the Minnesota Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

We encourage you to submit a speaker proposal, even if you’ve never presented before. The CCTM Annual Conference is the perfect place for coming together, sharing ideas, and getting feedback from peers who want to learn from each other. Regardless if your ideas are tested and true or fresh and fearless, we want to hear them! Speakers chosen for this year’s program will be notified by May 1.
