Summer Teachers Conference

July 15-19, 2024
Washington, D.C.

Conference Theme:
"WWII: The Transformation of America"

Conference Overview
The "WWII: The Transformation of America" conference aims to delve into the multifaceted changes that occurred in the United States during and after World War II. As educators, we recognize the importance of understanding this pivotal period in history, as it shaped not only the nation's identity but also its role on the global stage. The National World War II Memorial, which turns 20 in 2024, serves as a powerful backdrop, emphasizing the sacrifices made and the collective effort that transformed America into a key player in the fight for democracy.

Conference Benefits:

  • The conference is FREE, and includes accommodations, meals, and up to $400 for a travel stipend.
  • Each participating educator will receive a Certificate of Attendance, verifying conference session participation. This certificate may be used to apply for continuing education credits with your accrediting institution.


The program is open to elementary, middle, and high school teachers, as well as college professors at accredited public, charter, private, or parochial schools who will be teaching during the 2024–2025 school year. Media specialists, librarians, curriculum coordinators, and academic coaches are also eligible, provided they spend at least half of their time directly instructing students.

Community Service Commitment:
