We all have that list. It’s the one with the big picture ideas. The things to research. The big changes you want to undertake. How often do you get to actually check any of those boxes? There’s always a phone call to take, a problem to solve, a fire to put out (hopefully a figurative one).

When you’re the one at the head of an early learning center, you’re the one everyone comes to with the tough problems. It’s incredibly rewarding, but it’s also exhausting! As much as we all know we need to take a break to refresh and unwind, it’s so hard to justify stepping away. When we show up at the same place every day, we fall into routines and it’s so easy to lose sight of the big picture. We get distracted by the vision that brought us to our careers and fall into the trap of taking care of whatever is shouting for our attention right now. We all do it, but we know that’s no way to build an organization.

That’s why the Association for Early Learning Leaders is offering to take you to Pompano Beach for a few days. We know you’re too busy for a vacation, but this isn’t (just) about the beach. It’s about setting aside time to focus on the big picture. Getting away from it all means getting away from distractions, getting a fresh perspective, and maybe getting a tan while you’re at it.

The Association is run by people who get it. We know what it’s like to face the demands of being a leader in early childhood education. We tailor our programs and invite speakers based on what’s keeping our members up at night. This is your chance to get facetime with the experts and to connect with other leaders in your field. Sign up today and start packing.

The Fall Leadership Symposium is a gathering of experts who are passionate about early education. If you’re looking for a community help you overcome professional challenges and bring your work to the next level, this is it.
