Southern Regional Groups

CITE Regional Groups provide a great way for technologsts in education to find mutual support and deeper engagement with other local technologists in education. We encourage Regional Group attendees to support CITE and gain member benefits with their paid membership in the CITE organization. However, membership in the CITE organization is not required. Regional Group membership requires only that you work for a California public or private school organization and that you show up for the meetings. And, you can easily join a CITE Regional Group online community by signing up as an Educational Non-Member. Join today!
