NACTE 2022 Conference

Harvey's Lake Tahoe

July 19th- 22nd, 2022

Looking Forward- 2022

The NACTE conference theme is "Looking Forward". We picked this theme for its many meanings.

What are you looking forward to in the 2022-2023 school year?


Let's look forward and not back!

I know that many of us have been through a lot this past year both personally and professionally. Don't let the things that have happened in the past define your future.

Join us in Lake Tahoe for the 2022 NACTE Summer Conference as we are "Looking Forward".


Kent Julian is a lot of things… devoted family man, champion swim coach, CSP professional speaker with the National Speaker Association, fish-taco lover, and proud bald guy. Yet, this hasn’t always been the case. Kent started out as an at-risk child with severe learning challenges and SAT scores so low that he had to take Development Studies just to get into college—on probation.

From these humble beginnings, Kent went on to lead several large youth organizations in order to help teenagers who struggled just like him. This work eventually led Kent to become the Executive Director of a national youth association. During this time, because of all his work with Millennials and Millennial-focused organizations across the country, Kent ended up writing his dissertation on the challenges and opportunities of leading Millennials.

After 20 years in non-profit work, Kent changed directions and launched two successful businesses. Now, with his expertise in creating DREAM-to-DO work cultures, he is privileged to speak, write, and consult leaders and teams all over the country on the topics of employee engagement, leadership, and the multi-generational workforce.

You can find his work online in places like,, and more.
