CEC 2016 - St Louis

Check back here often for information about the next International CEC Convention in St. Louis!

CEC's Convention Page 

Registration is OPEN!!  St. Louis is approaching!  Housing is also open now.  Please visit the CEC Convention Page for more information.

The search for a keynote speaker has ended and I think that you will all be excited to see an incredible speaker … IT' TEMPLE GRANDIN!   We are also planning two other mini-opening sessions for Friday and Saturday mornings.  Some exciting speakers are planned for these sessions as well!

Once again, CEC will have an app to help you to navigate the convention!  Look for coming announcements.

Information about Strands and Invited Speakers is also available!  Check out for details! 

I will continue to update you each month on our plans! Look for some big names and some new faces as we strive to create a fun and informative convention!

 Hope to see you in St. Louis!
