CLTA Conference - Sacramento

Conference Registration Open Soon


Check out the CLTA Conference 2022 website. Read about the 2022 workshops HERE Registration online at will be available January 19th at  Pay with a credit card, check or a P.O. 

Due to COVID concerns the CLTA Board of Directors reluctantly made the decision to make the 2022 Conference virtual.  At our Board Meeting, we heard about districts that will not allow their teachers to attend large conference-like gatherings and teachers who are hindered due to the substitute teacher shortage. Our number one priority is to keep all of our teachers safe.
The virtual conference will have synchronous pre- and post-conference workshops as well as both synchronous and asynchronous interest sessions.  You will have access to all of the interest sessions on the 2022 Conference Channel of CLTA’s Youtube Platform until July 31.

Interest sessions will take place as they always do on Saturday and Sunday (2/26 & 2/27).  

Workshops will be spread out over four days (Wednesday – 2/23, Thursday– 2/24 & Friday– 2/25 from 4:00-6:30 and Sunday2/27 from 2:00-4:30) so that teachers do not have to take time off of work.  

The cost of pre- and post-workshops is $40 each. The registration fee for Saturday/Sunday Conference is $60. Rest assured that we will refund the difference for those of you who have paid or you could apply the difference to workshops, if you wish.
