In light of the current COVID-19 situation and the current and anticipated strain it is placing on Florida school districts’ finances and travel guidelines moving forward, the FCTM Board has decided to transition this year’s 67th Annual Conference to a virtual format. This decision was a difficult one to make, as we know teachers across Florida and beyond look forward to gathering and networking together each fall. After considering multiple scenarios, we feel this transition will ensure equitable access to conference content for each of our members and can allow us to serve others who may not ordinarily be able to attend our events in person. Your FCTM Board is hard at work planning this transition and will communicate updated plans for the conference through our website, e-mail, and social media accounts over the next few weeks.
Moving forward, members who have made hotel reservations at the Caribe Royale for October should contact the hotel and cancel those reservations. FCTM members and exhibitors currently registered for the conference will receive an email by May 22 containing information about adjusting or canceling their registrations. We ask for your patience as we work through these necessary details.
Although the format of our annual conference may be changing, our dedication to connecting you to meaningful, engaging mathematics professional learning has not. We are excited to engage with you through this new approach and hope you’ll make plans to join us in October. We look forward to seeing you there!
