National Staff Conference 2020 – Virtual

From Crisis to Action: Public Education and the Pandemic


Every year the National Staff Conference (NSC) brings together colleagues throughout the CTF/FCE Member Organizations to generate ideas, share best practices, and learn how we can collectively strengthen publicly funded public education. It’s also a lot of fun to get together. But this year, faced with the numerous challenges and changes brought on by the pandemic, it is even more important to find ways to connect and tackle them head-on. 

To adapt to this new reality of physical distancing and remote working, we are happy to invite you to the first virtual NSC. This event is going to be an entirely new virtual experience, but with the same purpose and great content of past years. 

Although we won’t be gathered in the same room, you can expect to safely connect with colleagues from coast to coast to coast and not only hear from, but have increased access to some amazing speakers on topics related to this year’s theme: “From Crisis to Action: Public Education and the Pandemic”.

Join us remotely for what is shaping up to be an incredible virtual event this November!
