AELL's 2016 Annual National Conference

 

In our busy days, it’s easy to forget the power and importance of investing in a face-to-face conversation with someone who speaks your language and shares your challenges.

There are many benefits to attending this year’s conference. There is the power of being connected to other professionals who are active in your field. There are the tremendous tools and resources that might be just what you need to meet those enrollment goals or take your team to the next level. So many early learning professionals cringe at the thought of taking a few days from their program to participate in a conference, but attending an event like the How Successful Directors Lead Conference can be a real game changer for your program and the families it serves.

Choosing to invest in yourself is choosing to invest in your leadership and the team you lead!

Here are four reasons to attend the How Successful Directors Lead Conference:

1. Networking and relationship building – meeting groups of people with shared interests is always fun and empowering! Exchanging ideas and experiences with like-minded individuals will not only be affirming, but can also help you grow personally and intellectually. The opportunity to engage informally at networking events and collaborate with your peers can be a life-giving and a life-long resource.

2. Educational Opportunities – whether you’re considering growing in your current position or are looking for a new role, attending the conference will allow you to stay current with the latest trends, research and technologies in the early care and education field and help you sustain and drive business.

3. Sessions tailored just for YOU – With a spectrum of topics offered that address various seasons of leadership; from the new director to seasoned executive leadership. Experts in our industry generously share valuable and practical tools that will make a meaningful contribution to your leadership and the life of your program.

4. Relax and get inspired – attending the conference will get you inspired by breaking out of your usual routine and helping you fully immerse in an expertise rich-environment.

Beginning 6/1/2020, the National Accreditation Commission will resume conducting validation visits. The Accreditation Office will work with individual programs to determine the impact of local restrictions on a potential visit. The safety of program families and staff and National Accreditation Commission validators is of the utmost importance and at the heart of all decisions made during the ongoing public health crisis. Please direct any questions and concerns to Erin Schmidt, Director of Accreditation, at [email protected]. Please monitor this website for further developments and updates. From the Accreditation Team to your team, stay safe and be well.

2020 NATIONAL CONFERENCE UPDATE: (7/6/2020)

The AELL Board of Directors met and made a unanimous decision to transition our 2020 conference to a virtual event for the safety and well-being of our participants, our staff, and our volunteers. This was not an easy decision, and tears were shed. This event has become a “reunion” each year as old friends and new come together to connect in meaningful and powerful ways.  Please know that our hearts hurt with yours that we won’t be together in-person this year.  We are saving hugs, high-fives, and fist bumps for Orlando 2021!
