A note about this year's registration process: In the past, attendees have identified their preferred sessions during the registration process. This year, in alignment with the National Association for the Education of Young Children's annual conferences, we are not requiring session choices ahead of the conference. Instead, please register for the days you plan to attend. Once you're at the conference, please plan to attend the sessions that are most aligned with your professional and personal interests and goals.
