More about the conference:

We’ve confirmed the Hilton College Station & Conference Center as the 2022 venue, and we could not be happier about this new location. Scholarship applications are open to non-federally funded adult and family literacy programs, and general registration will open by mid-May.

FAQs

Q: Who is the conference for?
A:
Anyone interested in adult and family literacy in Texas is welcome at the conference. We believe that the people who will gain the most are instructors and program administrators at all levels, at community-based adult literacy organizations and nonprofits.

We use the broadest definition of “literacy”, to include adult basic education, English as an additional language, high school equivalency, digital literacy, and workforce readiness, along with other kinds of teaching and learning.

Q: Should volunteer teachers and tutors attend?
A:
Volunteers are welcome at the conference and we aim to create a schedule that has something for everyone, but the primary events we hold for volunteers are our regional symposiums – read more here. The primary audience for the conference is staff from community-based literacy organizations.

Q: Are you offering scholarships again in 2022? 
A:
Yes, we are, thanks to generous funding from the Texas Workforce Commission. Scholarships are limited in number and restricted to those in non-federally funded programs. Applications are open now – find more information about them here.

Q: What about professional development credit?
A:
Yes, we’ll be offering PD credit again in 2022. Details are on their way!

Q: What happened to the third day of the conference?
A: After feedback from participants, we have separated the leadership training day from the conference once again. We held this training separately for some years, and it’s only recently that it’s been part of the conference. We heard from multiple participants that they’d appreciate it more if it could be online, and at another time in the calendar. We’re listening! We’ve added “What Leaders Need” 2022 to our calendar on Thursday, May 26.
