The 43rd Annual PAACE Midwinter Conference on Adult Education, the largest gathering of adult educators in Pennsylvania, will be held at the Hershey Lodge, February 6-8, 2008. Adult educators and those from related areas will convene for the premier professional development and networking opportunity for all aspects of adult education in the Pennsylvania.

The theme, ³Opening Windows,² will provide a focal point for exploring educational opportunities for all types of adult students, more efficient delivery systems, transition to postsecondary education and training, new research, professional development, workforce development, public policy supporting adult education, and an optimistic eye to the future.

Keynote speaker will be Dr. Cheryl D. King, study director for the new National Commission on Adult Literacy. Honorary conference chair is the Pennsylvania Workforce Investment Board (PA WIB).

We are requesting that all workshop proposals be submitted online.
