SIG Meetings

Special Interest Group Meetings

TCEA has seven Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for members who want to become even more involved in technology education and network throughout the year with other educators in similar positions. Each SIG is hosting a meeting for current members and those interested in learning more about joining the SIG. Some events require advance registration to attend; however, limited seating may be available for onsite registrants. View the program listing starting on page XX or in the mobile app for further details. For more information on joining a TCEA SIG, visit the membership booth located on level 1 atrium.
