Teaching is tough business – so don’t go it alone. CEA’s innovative online learning platform, COpilot, delivers relevant resources to give you a professional edge so you can help every student thrive. Online courses are fully blended and facilitated by your colleagues, and COpilot’s built-in social network forum, COnnect, gives you a place to meet, greet and create with other Colorado educators. We can all use a COpilot to soar higher and go further in our profession.

Summer Leadership Conference

Our premier professional learning event of the year brings 200+ members together from across Colorado every June to build skills and share knowledge. Members make their own conference schedules and attend a wide variety of workshops offered by experienced trainers with unique professional perspectives. The conference also features a distinguished lineup of speakers who give powerful insights on the critical education issues of the day.
