NCEA 2020 Goes Virtual

NCEA 2020 has been cancelled, but offers attendees a virtual option.

Arlington, VA – Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) has come to the difficult decision to cancel the NCEA 2020 Convention & Expo planned for Baltimore, MD, April 14 - 16, and modify it into an online professional development program. The health and safety of Catholic school teachers/administrators and the students and families they serve is paramount.

While the full Convention will not take place this year, NCEA will make available to registrants an online event with professional development sessions, small group chats, prayer opportunities and resources. This program will take place April 14 - 16, the same dates, so please don’t make plans for those days now you are not coming to Baltimore! We will keep you updated by email and on the NCEA website with more information on how to participate. Please be on the lookout for this information.

We ask those who have registered for Baltimore, both participants and vendors, to please be patient as we properly assess the many questions around refunds and logistics. We will reach out to you with more information in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, we urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols set by public health officials, Please join us as we continue to pray for those who have been impacted by the virus and the healthcare workers dedicated to their communities.


In service of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, NCEA strengthens Catholic school communities by providing professional development, formation, leadership and advocacy.
