The 2019 Annual Conference provides a professional development opportunity for the faculty and staff of Louisiana's Community and Technical Colleges. Each year we invite over 1,300 community and technical college employees to gather for the largest professional development of its kind in the state. The conference features concurrent session presenters who are hand-selected, dynamic subject matter experts. Each presenter provides detailed perspectives about practical and innovative solutions to today's community and technical college challenges and opportunities. This year we are celebrating building bright futures.
