Welcome to our registration page for the next NCCET Annual Conference event that will take place in Austin, Texas at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center. The event will be held from Wednesday, February 2 until Friday, February 4, 2022.
We are working to make it as easy as possible for you to join us in Austin for a very special event. Here is where you will be able to pay for your attendance and the attendance of others from your school or your guests. Here is where you will find access to room reservations and breakout sessions as they become available.
You are part of our NCCET family and we are committed to treating you as such. Thank you!
First person from each school - $595; Each subsequent attendee - $545
This is the first year that we have established Associate Memberships across the country as we establish our Regional Organizations. Associate members do not pay an annual membership fee, but they are included in most email broadcasts and notifications so that they can begin to understand the benefits of NCCET membership. Associate members are typically invited to Regional Forum events as they occur, but this does not pertain to the annual conference event. Associate Members who wish to join us in Austin are encouraged to become Institutional Members, by first paying the $500 annual membership fee. This will authorize as many people as you wish to participate fully in NCCET events.
EXHIBITORS AND SPEAKER’S FEES - $445
Anyone selected to speak at a breakout session or joining one of our exhibitors, above and beyond what is already covered by their Sponsorship Level, is qualified for the Speaker’s Fee. The Speaker’s Fee is not affected by the end of the Early Bird Registration period and continues on until the conference.
ONSITE GUEST ROOMS - $179.00 + 17% tax
The AT&T Conference Center agrees to hold the NCCET Room Block until 01/02/2022, but this only pertains to onsite rooms within the conference center. Should we exceed the availability of onsite rooms available, we will assist you in locating rooms in nearby hotels, but we cannot make any assurances of a comparable rate. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO RESERVE YOUR ROOM ACCOMODATIONS.
Use this link to make and manage your reservations through the AT&T website portal.
Participants in the NCCET Exhibition and Trade Show should also make their room accomodations here, separate from Ttade Show Registration on the Corporate Sponsor's page.
SPECIAL THURSDAY NIGHT EVENING EVENT
We anticipate scheduling at least one after hours event during the conference. Any such event will require pre-registration to properly account for attendee volumes. This is where you come to register for such an event once that event has been announced.
PROPOSALS FOR ALL CONFERENCE SESSIONS
The Call for Proposals for both plenary and breakout sessions is now open on this website. For security purposes we ask that you log in or register in order to submit your proposal. We are as eager to hear from potential speakers from Associate Members as we are from our Institutional Member schools. We will be closely evaluating these sessions for their value and their impact in their respective categories.
Speakers chosen to present at the conference that are not from Institutional Member schools will NOT be required to join as members in order to present. They WILL be required to pay conference registration and room fees.
Once again, we are planning to deliver specific tracks which you can follow according to your interests. Those tracks are, Staff Development Programs, Revenue Growth Strategies, New Non-Credit Curriculums, and Business Engagement. The sessions may be presentations or panel discussions. Additional detail will be forthcoming in the weeks and months ahead.
In addition, we have actively been building our regional organizations to bring the benefits of NCCET membership that much closer to you. Proposals for sessions that are NOT selected for the Annual Conference may be made available for presentation during the soon to be introduced Regional Forums which will take place within your state throughout the year.
We are also eager to introduce an NCCET Trade Show that is actively engaged at the very heart of the conference. Companies wishing to participate as exhibitors in the NCCET Trade Show are to register on the Sponsor's page.

What is the significance of the courtyard photo above?
That is where our reception will be held on Wednesday evening at 6:00PM. It is really a great space and should be a wonderful place for our members reunion.
What is the deadline for the Call for Proposals submissions?
Our plan is to accept submissions until the end of November... HOWEVER, we also want to use these sessions in marketing this event to the countless new members in our new regions. So while technically, you have until the end of November, please stay tuned to NCCET broadcasts. There will be a total of 16 high quality, high value breakout sessions and 3 "keynote" plenary sessions. We will reserve the right to move the deadline, depending upon the program as it evolves.
