The CRLA 2018 Annual Conference Registration is now open! We are pleased to announce the College Reading and Learning Association’s (CRLA) 51st Annual Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on October 24-27, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque. The 2018 CRLA conference theme — En Route to Student Success — makes reference to famous Route 66, which runs through the heart of diverse and dynamic Albuquerque. For more than a half-century, we, a community of reading and learning researchers and practitioners, have been on a journey to enhance student academic success. In our everyday work, we cross geographic, cultural, and socio-economic borders; merge disciplinary and technological boundaries; overcome age and language differences; and narrow gaps in high school, college, and career transitions. Join us at our 51st Annual Conference as we continue our journey together in sunny Albuquerque, New Mexico! From Wednesday to Saturday, there will be a schedule packed with pre-conference institutes, roundtables, concurrent sessions featuring speakers in all twelve of CRLA’s SIG strands, meetings of SIGs and regional groups, as well as a variety of social and cultural events that will allow you to explore our host city. In Albuquerque, you can explore a beautiful city in mid-70 degree temperatures and join excursions to exciting places like the Sandia Peak and an Acoma Pueblo. You will also have the privilege of engaging in keynote and endnote presentations by two outstanding and influential New Mexicans: Jimmy Santiago Baca and Dr. Alicia Chávez. Please register early and sign up in advance for tours and optional sessions, such as pre-conference institutes and Lunch with a Mentor.
