Plans for CATESOL’s 50th Annual Conference, “Honoring the Past and Inspiring the Future,” are underway! The Annual Conference will take place from October 3 to 6 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. Please take a look at the CATESOL Annual Conference website for up-to-date conference information: http://www.catesolannualconference.org/ On the website, you'll find:
  • A link to submit a proposal to present (and the deadline is Friday, May 31): Submit a proposal!
  • Registration rates – the Super-Saver registration rates end on Wednesday, May 15, but you still have two more chances to pay a reduced conference rate: Register here!
  • Hotel information – we have information on and rates for three hotels next to the Convention Center: See information here!
  • Information about a special pre-conference institute on advocacy, learning how to advocate for your students and programs at both the state and federal levels: More information on advocacy
  • Ways to secure funding to attend – Awards are available at different levels: See information on awards and a "Make the Case" letter can be presented to your employer to support your attendance at the conference.
And, CATESOL is still in the midst of a spring membership drive - become a member and pay the reduced member conference rate! More information on the membership drive that ends on May 31 is on the CATESOL website: https://www.catesol.org/membership

Reach out and let your friends and colleagues know about CATESOL and this momentous event. Again, important dates to remember at the moment:
  • May 15 – Super-Saver registration rates end
