We can’t wait to see you on Monday, August 1, and Tuesday, August 2, 2022 for the next annual conference! Our theme is “Literacy for All“.
We’ve confirmed the Hilton College Station & Conference Center as the 2022 venue, and we could not be happier about this new location. Keep an eye out for the call for presentations, which will open in the early new year, with general registration to follow.

Q: Who is the conference for?
A: Anyone interested in literacy in Texas is welcome at the conference. We believe that the people who will gain the most are program administrators at all levels, at community-based adult literacy organizations.
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: Will you be offering scholarships again in 2022?
A: Yes, we will, thanks to generous funding from the Texas Workforce Commission. Scholarships will be limited in number and restricted to those in non-federally funded programs – details on how to apply will be available soon.
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 the Leadership Training to our 2022 calendar on Thursday, April 21 – and if you have strong feelings about content, and whether it should be online or in-person, now’s the time to get in touch.
