CAEL International Conference

The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning invites you to join us in Chicago, Illinois for the CAEL International Conference. This year’s theme: “Partners in Progress: Unite to Educate America's Workforce”, examines partnerships between universities and colleges, corporations, government, non-profit organizations, and workforce developers. You’ll learn how we can work together to help adults thrive in both their educational aspirations and flourish in their careers. The conference will be held November 9-11, 2016 at the Palmer House Hilton.

The annual conference brings together over 500 participants to learn, network, and work together to make lifelong learning accessible to adults around the world. Attendees include college faculty and administrators, HR professionals, workforce developers and representatives from labor and government.

Registration for the conference will open in Spring 2016.
