The CAEP Summit 2022 is fast-approaching!

If you have not done so already, register to attend the CAEP Summit 2022. This year will be another virtual experience, hosted on an engaging, customized virtual platform which hopefully makes attending a little more convenient for all. Space is limited and filling up fast. Register today!


Call for Exhibitors

The CAEP Summit 2022 Planning Committee invites adult education product and service providers to exhibit at this year’s conference to engage with attendees to explore opportunities to support adult learners. This year, exhibitors will have more visibility throughout the conference by sponsoring lunch hours, breaks, the networking event, and sessions.


In lieu of a fee to exhibit at the CAEP Summit 2022, the planning committee is requesting donations (i.e. curriculum licenses, textbooks, conference registrations, magazine subscriptions, wellness items, gift cards, etc.) according to tiered values. The donation tier values are: Creativity ($250 to $499) and Innovation ($125 to $249). The donations will go directly to the attendees and their agencies, who will participate in activities and earn points. Donated items can be tangible or electronic (i.e. e-gift cards). Tangible items will be shipped to CAEP TAP and CAEP TAP will distribute to all winners. The CAEP Summit 2022 Planning Committee will determine each winner and coordinate the exchange of the donations.


Use the following links to access complete details about each tier, including the opportunities available to exhibitors.

How Norma Viveros’ Positive Outlook and Strong Support System Pushes Her Drive Forward

Norma Viveros wears a lot of hats.

To her students at Victoria Elementary in San Bernardino, she’s known as Ms. Norma. At home, she’s mom. At Crafton Hills College, she’s a proud graduate of the Class of 2022.

The San Bernardino woman was one of more than a thousand to celebrate their educational accomplishments during a campus-wide commencement ceremony on May 25. But her path to receiving an associate degree in early childhood development was not always easy, but one that was etched when presented with a challenge.

“I was working as a campus monitor at Victoria and there was a teacher who told my son that he was going to ‘end up like his mother.’ I didn’t like that,” explained the 46-year-old. “The neighborhood I live in is not in the best area, but it is just home to me, and I didn’t like (my son) looking at me and saying, ‘I’m not going to graduate.’ So, I made it my mission to get my diploma and show him that if his mom could do it, he could do it.”

Looking also to prove the doubters wrong, Viveros enrolled at Redlands Adult School to earn her high school diploma. After crushing that goal, she began her Crafton journey and has plans to continue her studies at Cal State San Bernardino in the fall.
