We’re excited to announce our Friday keynote speaker is Kelly Holstine, 2018 Minnesota State Teacher of the Year. Her keynote will highlight the importance of owning flaws and prioritizing one’s own mental health in order to make more authentic connections with others.

On Saturday we welcome Karla Heeter, Executive Director for Buffalo Hospital Foundation, part of Allina Health. Her keynote will give you the tools to find and/or maintain your happiness and enhance your resilience. You can expect to be moved, inspired, humored and entertained.

In addition to these powerful keynote sessions, we’ve filled the two days with more than 60 timely, educational, and thought-provoking workshops designed just for you.


New this Year! Winter Leadership Institute


You spoke and we listened! We’ve heard that it can difficult for some to attend our Summer Leadership Institute because of the demands of summer programming, so we’ll be hosting a pre-event to our conference on Thursday, January 31.

It’s the same high quality event that we hold in the summer, designed for all different types of leaders in the early childhood and afterschool fields, but held adjacent to our conference, allowing you the opportunity to attend TWO high quality events at a reduced price.
