Strong leadership is a quality that every organization needs in order to thrive. The Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (CSCTFL) has developed a program that will broaden leadership potential in its 14 state region.

  • Participants must apply in advance to attend this daylong workshop on Thursday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
  • This workshop is offered at no additional charge but participants must register for the conference.
  • The participant must be sponsored by a state that is a member of the CSCTFL Advisory Council.  Each state may send two attendees.  (If there are open spots, the registrant may self-nominate as long as their state is a member of the AC.)
