The WCET Annual Meeting brings together higher education professionals to share advances in digital learning practices and to explore emerging policy challenges facing institutions and organizations today. The 35th Annual Meeting will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Note About the WCET Annual Meeting Being Held in Louisiana
When WCET selected New Orleans, LA for our 2023 Annual Meeting, Louisiana was not included on the list of states that California does not allow travel to. We have a significant number of members in California and certainly don’t want to exclude them from being able to attend our conference. We also have a significant number of members in Louisiana and want to be able to support the 31 members located there.
By agreeing to host our meeting in New Orleans, we are not condoning restrictive policies against any population. In fact, we typically do not send requests for proposals for states with anti-transgender or restrictive reproductive rights and have not held a WCET Annual Meeting in one of those states in the past. The list of banned travel states from California does weigh into our decision making, and we understand that other states are considering retaliatory legislation as well. We strive to be member-focused, and every venue and every state has pros and cons that are thoroughly considered.
We know that many of our community members may not be able to attend the 2023 Annual Meeting in New Orleans. We do hope that our 2024 event, which will be held in Long Beach, California, provides the opportunity for all who are interested to attend.
