For nearly 20 years, the conference has been a popular annual event where early and school-age educators assemble to develop their skills, to network, and to grow. To highlight this spirit of development, engagement and growth, both in a professional capacity and in terms of optimal child outcomes, we have named the conference “Making Connections.”








Thank you to our conference sponsors:
