We are pleased to announce some exciting updates for this year’s GCEA 99th Annual Conference, taking place in Alton, Illinois. We extend a warm invitation to all educators within the Graphic Communication field to participate in this interactive conference. This year, the conference will be hosted at a High School for the first time, meaning there will be no dormitory accommodations available. As a result, we have separated the cost of the conference from the hotel stay. We have arranged for 50 rooms at a nearby hotel at a reduced rate. Additionally, attendees have the option to share a room and divide expenses, or bring along family members for a Midwest vacation. There are numerous attractions in the vicinity, such as the St. Louis Arch, Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis Zoo, Pere Marquette State Park, Raging Rivers Waterpark, Grafton Wineries, Riverboat Casinos, and much much more.

We look forward to welcoming you to this summer’s conference!
