Spring Conference Cancelled

ceao-logoDue to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CEAO board would like to announce that the 2020 CEAO Conference at Lake Erie College will be moved to the spring of 2021. The conference will retain the same theme and location. A new date will be established and current submissions will be automatically considered for the CEAO 2021 conference (there will be no need to resubmit for those who already did so).

Typically at the spring meeting we make changes to our board, including naming the new president, vice president, and any other positions which will require a new board member to take over.  We also ask if any attendees are interested in becoming board members. Because we are moving this year’s conference all current board members will remain in their positions and we won’t be adding any new members until next year’s conference.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause for those planning to present. We do, however, realize many institutions are no longer offering funding for travel and want to be sure this conference is accessible to those who work within English Studies in Ohio.

If you have already submitted conference registration, please reach out to Anthony Edgington for reimbursement: Anthony.edgington@utoledo.edu

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

All the best,
