We invite you to share your insights and knowledge with colleagues as a presenter via a prerecorded session. This event is designed for early childhood and afterschool professionals that currently hold a leadership position, those that aspire to a leadership position, and those that support leaders and leadership (coaches, trainers and consultants).

This year's theme is The Importance of Connecting. Before the pandemic, directors, managers, supervisors and administrators carried a heavy load of work and responsibility and were faced with many critical decisions every day. The pandemic has exacerbated this heavy load. Many are trying to keep their program doors open, counseling their staff, keeping children and families engaged, working from home and supporting their own families. This is a lot. This is hard because it's hard. But it's made easier when we connect with others.

What are the benefits of presenting?

  • Presenter honorarium
  • Opportunity to present at a well-known event with leaders in the fields of early childhood and afterschool
  • Enhance your credibility and stature in the field
  • Contribute to your community's expertise
  • Challenge yourself in a new way
  • Free registration to the event (Regular Summer Leadership Institute Experience only)
