ICTM Annual Conference Information Page


The Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics meets every October, gathering educators from across the state of Illinois for an inspirational time of professional development, collaboration, and community. We have sessions and workshops led by some of the best educators in the state. In some years since 2015, ICTM has been partnering with ISTA (Illinois Science Teachers Association) to provide an integrated ICTM/ISTA conference experience in which participants can engage in STEM professional development in one place. Our upcoming conference for 2021 will be the the 70th annual ICTM conference!

2020 Conference Recap: In response to the pandemic, we had our very first Virtual Annual Conference on 10/17/20!  The conference began withSunil Singh as our featured speaker, was followed by two break-out sessions, and concluded with a time for Trivia and connecting. Over 480 teachers registered for this virtual experience!  A special thank you to all of the presenters and volunteers that made the conference possible.  Seventeen of the conference sessions were recorded along with seven Bonus Sessions that were not presented at the conference.  These recordings are a member-benefit and can all be seen by clicking here (You will be prompted to sign into your ICTM account if you are not already logged in).  If you are not a current member, you can become one today and gain instant access to these recordings for your continued professional development.
