Welcome to Kalispell!

Come to Kalispell, Montana - July 22-26, 2019 - for the 13th Annual Americas HTEC CNC Educator Conference!


Network with Educators, HTEC Partners and Industry Professionals as you begin Building Bridges in Manufacturing Education by learning how to leverage your Programs and Partnerships - with Students, Communities, Manufacturing Companies, Schools, Programs and more!

Education Community Outreach - Something exciting and new - we will be planning to have a Silent Auction for Big Hearts under the Big Sky - a 501c non-profit program started by the Montana Outfitters and Guides Association (MOGA). MOGA places children diagnosed with life threatening illness, women suffering from breast cancer and military veterans who have provided extraordinary service to our country, on fully guided and outfitted trips at no charge. Jim Weber, Capital High School is working with Montana Manufacturing Extension Center on this project and what a great way for Manufacturing and Manufacturing Eduation to support a great organization! More details on this special addition to come!


Come early for an exciting tour at Boeing in Helena - fly into Helena, Montana over the weekend and experience an amazing tour of Boeing's Helena plant (lunch provided by Boeing) on Monday morning. Check out the beautiful scenery of Montana as you drive to Kalispell after lunch (about a 4 hour drive).


The official kickoff to the conference will be the Monday Night Welcome Reception, to be held in the Community Room at Flathead Valley Community College's Arts and Technology Building from 6-9 pm.
