NAECTE meets twice a year, during the NAEYC fall conference and at the June NAEYC Professional Development Institute. The main NAECTE meeting is at the NAEYC fall conference. There is no separate registration for the NAECTE annual meeting, it is included in your NAEYC registration. However, we do hope that you will renew your NAECTE membership at the fall meeting.
If you have questions about NAECTE conferences, please contact Kelly Baker, the Vice President for Conference Programs at
