Educator Round Tables

The Educator Round Tables provide the Catholic School community with quality educational tools by creating a platform for educators and vendors to engage in meaningful dialogue through discussions about education products and services. 

Participants who are selected for a group will receive: one complementary lunch, a $25 gift certificate and an opportunity to win a $500 scholarship toward their school.  In addition, participants will receive a retro-active discount toward their NCEA 2018 registration which will be applied after the Convention. Participants must be present at the Educator Round Table to receive any and all incentives offered. 

Participants will be asked to commit to up to a one hour in a session at the convention center and actively participate in the discussion group. Participating in this session does not obligate you to purchase any products or services.

Be a part of improving the long standing legacy of Catholic Education through meaningful dialogue with the nation’s top educators!   You may sign up for an Educator Round Table during registration, but hurry, space is limited!
