About the Conference:
This event traditionally draws nearly 1,000 participants who provide programming for children and youth. We are very excited about this partnership between the early childhood and school-age statewide organizations.
We encourage you to share your knowledge and expertise with the people attending this engaging event. This conference brings together administrators, lead staff, center directors and direct care and education staff who are eager to enhance their own professional development and improve the quality of their programs. You’ll leave with new networks, renewed energy, and tools to work in these ever changing fields of early childhood and school-age care.
We are committed to creating a diverse, safe, and welcoming space for participants to learn and share. We want to make sure we receive conference session proposals from the widest audience as possible, including from you!
All workshop proposals are welcome and will be considered. We will give special attention to those that incorporate the theme of this year's conference: "(Re)Imagine the Power of You". Whether you are a new teacher in the classroom, an aide or assistant in an afterschool program, a long-time director of a child care center, a supervisor of an afterschool program, you are a leader. You have the power to make a difference in the lives of the children and families you serve, in the way the program is run, in impacting policy conversations at all levels of government. This conference will be a compelling reminder that we are all leaders in the fields of early childhood and school-age care.
