I came out inspired and able to do some new things at my center because of the things I learned. I'm glad I went! The conference was a success!

~Mary, Child Care Center Director

Happy with program – there were some excellent discussions and it was nice to network with my colleagues to share best practices.

~Tom, Child Care Center Owner

I'm looking to move to the next phase of my life and retire.  I learned so much about next steps, transition plans, and how to communicate when I'm ready.  This was the BEST conference ever!
