NACTA is pleased to invite you to join us at our next year’s annual meeting. Learn more about this exciting event and keep your calendars open!

June 19-23, 2023

Conference Program
The annual meeting of the North Americal Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA) offers many opportunities for education and networking and brings agricultural education across the continuum together. This meeting offers workshops, poster and oral presentations, a Keynote Presentation, a Blue Ribbon Presentation, and several networking opportunities. At this annual meeting of the North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA) you will be able to connect with and learn from others who share the same passion for the improvement of teaching and learning in agriculture, food and natural resources. The annual NACTA conference will provide you with new teaching techniques, ideas and resources. It is also one of the best professional development activities for networking with other teaching professionals where the common discipline is “teaching.”

Who should attend?
Our annual meeting is designed for all those who teach and lead curricula in the fields of agriculture, environmental, life, and natural sciences. Participants include educators and graduate students from a number of North American institutions. 

About Las Cruces
Las Cruces, New Mexico is renowned for its outdoor recreation, robust history, and - most of all - culinary experiences. The ever-so-famous red chile vs green chile debate will be the talk of the 2023 NACTA Conference! While you visit Las Cruces, make sure you visit the award-winning Farmers & Crafts Market. Are you more into the outdoors? Las Cruces has over 100 miles of scenic hiking trails as well as golfingbiking, and horseback riding. For something a little more closer to home, come visit the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum or partake in one of the many agricultural tours. To learn more about what you can do and see while at the 2023 NACTA Conference, click here
