2023 CSCTFL Extension Workshop
The Conference Extension Workshop (C-EW) has a long-standing CSCTFL tradition. Participants in this all-day event learn from nationally recognized experts. All conference participants are welcome to register and attend this outstanding professional development. In addition, each state organization is encouraged to send up to two representatives to C-EW who will replicate the workshop at their own state conference or district, using the workshop materials and thus “extending” the workshop in their state. This can be either as a session, half-day workshop or full-day workshop. State representatives who “extend” the workshop will have their workshop fee reimbursed and receive a small stipend to defray costs. Extension Workshop reimbursement applies only to those whose states have an active State Advisory Council Membership.
