What is “Chautauqua”?
Chautauqua is an adult education movement that started in the late 19th century on Chautauqua Lake, New York. The Ely Chapter holds Chautauquas in honor of our founder Richard T. Ely, who was a prominent teacher at the Chautauqua Institution. The Chautauqua model of providing an in-depth forum to explore a topic helps us support our core mission to connect professionals interested in sharing knowledge and advancing best
practices. Richard T. Ely described this knowledge sharing as the “sifting and winnowing” of ideas.

Sign up early!  Registration ends on October 12th.
