Conference on English Leadership

CEL logoThe Conference on English Leadership (CEL) offers 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.

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.
