Every Fall NCCTM hosts the State Mathematics Conference. In addition, a Leadership Seminar is hosted each Fall on the day before the conference.
2021 State Mathematics Conference
It is with a heavy heart that we cancelling the November 2021 Fall Conference. We were hopeful for a face-to-face conference this November. We had a full conference experience planned and were looking forward to being back together again. In addition to planning, the conference committee has kept a dutiful eye on statewide Covid-19 metrics and the operating status of school districts across North Carolina. We also recognize that professional release time for classroom teachers has become increasingly difficult for many schools and school districts. NCCTM’s commitment is to NC’s classroom mathematics teachers, and it is important that when we have a conference, all roles in our math education family are able to attend. After much deliberation and evaluation of these data points, we feel like meeting face to face in a large group setting is not in the best interest of our membership and organization.
The Conference Committee has pivoted and is working on plans for two virtual experiences. Details are limited at this time but will be shared as they evolve!
First - We are planning a virtual Leadership Meeting to be held on Wednesday, November 10th. This will be an engaging virtual experience with keynote speakers and break out rooms by grade bands. Details will be released by the end of September!
Second - and perhaps most exciting - is a “re-envisioned” virtual conference. This event will be fully online in the early spring of 2022. Sessions will be held across multiple days at various times. We are working on a sliding registration fee schedule according to the number of sessions you are interested in attending. CEU credits will be awarded accordingly.

NCCTM Statement on Equitable Access to Quality Mathematics Instruction
Students need to experience mathematics in ways that allow them to be successful and that give them the power to change the world. This experience needs to be delivered with both excellence and equality while resonating with the lives of Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, and all marginalized peoples. Racism cannot be tolerated, and we as teachers must be vigilant that we do not tolerate nor contribute to racism, bias, hate, or violence in our classrooms.
