Join us for the 2021 COABE National Virtual Conference

Conference registration will open soon!


Accepted presentations will be announced soon

New this year we will provide the presenter with the choice of how they would like to deliver their presentation(s). Due to recent events with moving our 2020 conference to a full virtual platform we have decided to move forward with a hybrid version of our national conference going forward. This will offer those who are not able to attend in person the opportunity to still participate in our national conference from a distance. For those presenters who are looking to present both in-person and virtually this will be done during your live in-person presentation. 

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email  Please click here for more information.

  • 50 mini grants will be awarded.

This opportunity is generously provided by Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
