Conference on English Leadership

CEL

The Conference on English Leadership (CEL) is a collaborative, dynamic, discussion-based forum for literacy leaders to explore current and emerging issues. CEL welcomes education professionals who want to seek solutions and share their special insights with others. Within CEL, leaders of literacy programs in a variety of settings--rural or urban, small districts or large, public or private, traditional or experimental--will find a vibrant forum for exploring contrasting and controversial ideas.Read more about our mission and vision here.

CEL Members

CEL members include literacy leaders at all levels: classroom teachers, department heads, language arts coordinators, supervisors, consultants, resource teachers, principals, directors of instruction, college and university educators, affiliate leaders, and others exercising formal or informal leadership in their schools, districts, or states.

ELQ

Starting with the August 2015 issue, ELQ is going green. Read more about the media enhancements to ELQ that you'll gain as a subscriber. The production and mailing savings from ELQ's going green, plus a small increase in green membership rates (to $25 for standard individual subscriptions), will help to fund new and expanded CEL programming initiatives that support literacy leaders, including an expanded Emerging Leader Fellowship cohort and the CEL NJ Regional Institute this October.
