The Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics meets every October, gathering educators from across the state of Illinois for two days of professional development, collaboration, and community. We have sessions and workshops led by some of the best educators in the state. Since 2015, ICTM has been partnering with ISTA (Illinois Science Teachers Association) to provide an integrated ICTM/ISTA conference experience in which participants can engage in STEM professional development in one place. This year's conference is the 68th annual ICTM conference!
