Join Us for the 68th Annual NACTA Meeting
June 20 - 24, 2022 in Wooster, Ohio!


Hello, NACTA Members and guests!

Welcome to the annual conference and to the beautiful rural farmland of Wooster, Ohio. You will be glad you chose to spend your time with us.

My first NACTA conference was in 1993. It was easy for me to choose to make NACTA an important annual component of my teaching professional development. I hope you will quickly see why! NACTA’s Keynote and Blue Ribbon speakers are always highlights for me. In addition, NACTA’s members are scholars in teaching and learning, so I learn from their lines of inquiry in ways that inform my teaching practices. Finally, I “steal” strategies, techniques, and activities from my colleagues that often benefit my students immediately the following fall semester.
 

Thank you for joining our NACTA Community. You will be happy you chose NACTA!

Warmly,
M. Susie Whittington

President of NACTA
 

Hosted by The Ohio State University at the Arden Shisler Center for Education and Economic Development
