At various times, members will be invited to attend workshops of local concern. The format of these workshops varies from travelling workshops to teleconferences, depending on the needs of the members. Members are invited to workshops in their local and surrounding areas. All members are encouraged to organize PD events. See the PD Opportunities Program brochure for details.

An annual conference is held each fall. It features practical and theoretical sessions related to areas
of CTS/CTF. There is also ample opportunity to socialize and renew friendships.

CTEC Support for Innovative Teachers
Each year, nominations are accepted for innovative teaching awards. These awards are presented at the annual conference.

The membership of the council comprises educators from Division II to IV schools, colleges and universities, libraries and businesses.
