Fall Conference 2021 Postponed

The 2021 CT COLT Fall Conference has been postponed. This postponement is a direct result of the unprecedented shortage of substitute teachers. We are considering a few options for the new dates in the spring, with the in-person portion of the conference most likely being on a day that does not require substitutes, such as a Saturday.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Next steps:

We are looking to you, our members, to help provide us with your input in helping us plan the rescheduled CT COLT Fall Conference. We ask that you complete this survey by Wednesday October 13. We will use the results to figure out the best dates for the rescheduled conference.

FAQs about the Conference Postponement:

  • When will I know the dates of the new conference? After analyzing the survey results and meeting with the hotel, we will have new conference dates, and will share these as soon as possible.
  • I already registered for the conference. What do I do? We will transfer any existing registrations to the new conference. We will send more detailed information about this soon, and we can refund any current registrations for any reason. More information on cancellation/refunds will be forthcoming.
  • What will happen to the existing workshops and schedule? We are expecting it to stay the same, based on presenter availability, and for all the current workshop days to “shift” to the new ones.
  • I am a presenter. What does this mean for me? The Fall Conference committee will be in touch with presenters to confirm availability for the new dates, once we know what they are.
  • What if I am an exhibitor? The Fall Conference committee will be in touch with exhibitors to confirm availability for the new dates.
  • Where will the new conference be? The in-person portion of the conference will still be at the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale.

The Fall Conference Committee and the CT COLT Board of Directors would like to thank you for your incredible diligence, inspiration, and resilience.
