Registration for this year's UCTE Conference will be closing at the end of the day on October 30. You must register by this date in order to guarantee that you'll have a spot at the conference keynote and breakout sessions. We will have limited on-site registration, but cannot guarantee open spots after the deadline. See below for more information about the conference and for the registration link.
Our 2014 annual conference will be held this year on Friday, November 7 at the Jordan Commons Megaplex convention center in Sandy, UT. Our conference this year will feature keynote and breakout sessions from Cris Tovani, reading specialist and author of such respected books as I Read It But I Don't Get It, and Gene Luen Yang, author of young adult graphic novels American Born Chinese and Boxers & Saints.
This all-day conference will feature inspiring keynotes from teacher advocates and young adult authors as well as a full slate of breakout sessions for teachers of all grade levels. Costs for attending this conference are $70 for full, individual registration and $40 for full-time students. And, as always, teachers can join together and receive a discount of six registrations for the price of five. Talk to your department and district colleagues about joining you for this fantastic event!
In conjunction with the conference, we are sponsoring a number of Utah authors for a breakfast before the conference. This is a ticketed event and will cost an additional $10. This year, we're pleased to have commitments from Kristen Landon, Jessica Day George, Kristen Chandler, Ken Baker, and Tess Hilmo, with more to come. If you'd like to rub shoulders with fine young adult authors (and start off your conference day with a tasty, full breakfast), simply add the Author Breakfast option to your registration.
