The National Sex Ed Conference is the largest conference in the United States designed exclusively for sexuality educators. Sessions address sexuality education for all ages, in all types of settings, and are highly interactive and give participants materials they can replicate. The conference is hosted by The Center for Sex Education (CSE). The CSE has been hosting this conference since 1985. What started as a one-day conference for New Jersey health educators has grown into the largest conference in the United States exclusively devoted to sexuality education. Participants attend from across the nation and many other parts of the world to network and learn best practices in sexuality education, addressing a spectrum of topics, audiences, and ages.
