ProLiteracy’s 2017 Conference on Adult Literacy will take place September 27-30, 2017, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. ProLiteracy’s Conference on Adult Literacy brings together a dynamic group of individuals and organizations that are committed to responding to the literacy and education needs of the nation and the world.

Building on the tremendous success of our past conferences, and with your ongoing input, we've designed our 2017 national conference around the most pressing issues facing our field today—from technology to fundraising; from instruction to advocacy; from citizenship to HSE preparation; and much more—all while keeping costs affordable in a central location with much to see and do.

The ProLiteracy conference planning team is seeking presentations that explore how organizations and practitioners can work collaboratively to build instructional capacity and best deliver innovative, effective literacy services for the benefit of adult learners, their families, and our shared communities.
