Annual Conference 2022

WE’RE BACK!

The 59th Annual Cooperative Education and Internship Association Conference will be held, live and in-person, April 3-5, 2022 in Alexandria, Virginia. This year’s theme is Celebrate, Advocate, and Inspire. I believe we can all relate to each of those areas as we look to the future.

The Conference Committee is hard at work planning for an outstanding conference. This year’s conference will be held at the Westin Alexandria Old Town. This Four-Star Four-Diamond hotel is the perfect location for our conference. You’ll find beauty along the cobblestone streets and red brick sidewalks in Old Town Alexandria, home to specialty shops, boutiques, and museums. Just across the Potomac River, you can seamlessly discover first-class attractions at National Harbor and Washington, D.C. Plan on coming early or staying late to take in all the area has to offer.

It is not too early to start thinking about presenting at the 2022 conference. The program committee’s “Call for Proposals” will be coming out soon. You can present individually or team up with a colleague. We can’t wait to hear the new best practices and ideas you have discovered.

CEIA is a special organization. Thanks to each of you for the support over the past two years as we transitioned from in-person to virtual conferences. We can’t wait to see each of you, in-person, in Alexandria!
