    NCTM Annual Meeting & Exposition St. Louis Update

    Updated: May 26, 2020

    After carefully considering the health and safety of participants and the uncertain future of events with large gatherings the NCTM Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to postpone the NCTM Annual Meeting & Exposition in St. Louis from October 21-24, 2020 to April 21-24, 2021.

    This decision to postpone what should have been our second meeting in 2020 was difficult, but we believe it is the right decision and allows us time to plan for an outstanding event with new safety protocols. We hope you will commit to being in St. Louis with us in April.

    In keeping with our mission to advocate for high-quality mathematics teaching and learning for each and every student, we are continuing to provide professional development options for the math community throughout the spring and summer with our 100 Days of Professional Learning ( and will be announcing a very special virtual learning opportunity to be held this fall. Please follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn for more announcements and continue to visit for updates on our 100 Days of Professional Learning live sessions and recordings, and other events as they are announced.

    Thank you again for your commitment to NCTM, this event, and the entire mathematics education community. We look forward to seeing you in St. Louis in April.

    NCTM Centennial Annual Meeting & Exposition in Chicago Cancelled

    Updated: March 12, 2020

    In light of today's announcement by Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker mandating that all gatherings of 1,000 or more be cancelled immediately, the NCTM Centennial Annual Meeting & Exposition, scheduled for April 1-4, will be cancelled.

    We appreciate the understanding of those who were looking forward to attending the Centennial Annual Meeting, as well as the many other participants-from local volunteers to exhibitors and vendors. This is disappointing for all of us, particularly the Program Committee which has worked tirelessly for more than two years and the many NCTM staff who have helped and supported them.

    It is especially unfortunate to have to make this change of plans because in a sense the Centennial Annual Meeting was 100 years in the making. With this year's change to having the NCTM Annual Meeting in the fall, we will begin making arrangements immediately to include several of the Chicago centennial celebration plans in the Annual Meeting in St. Louis.

    We hope that those who have registered will take advantage of the option of transferring your registration to the Annual Meeting in St. Louis, October 21-24, and we hope to meet you in St. Louis.

    Registrants will receive an email by March 27 containing information about processing registration refunds or transferring your registration to the Annual Meeting in St. Louis, October 21-24, and we hope to meet you in St. Louis. We ask for your patience as we work through these necessary details.

    Housing Update

    All hotel reservations booked through the NCTM Housing Bureau (MCI Events) will be cancelled on your behalf and (if applicable) you will receive a refund of your deposit within 10 business days. Good news is that there is no further action on your part, you will not need to request a cancellation of your hotel reservation. Hotel reservations made directly with the hotel or another agency will have to be canceled separately. We look forward to seeing you at NCTM's 2020 Annual Meeting in St. Louis!
