Welcome to the Conference
Thank you to everyone who joined us at the St. Paul RiverCentre on February 10 and 11, 2012 for the Annual Conference of the Minnesota Association for the Education of Young Children (MnAEYC) and the Minnesota School Age Care Alliance (MnSACA). This year’s conference theme was “Building Bridges – Inspiring Action.”
As always, the conference was two full days of learning, networking and reflecting focused on our organizations’ goal of supporting professionals and enhancing the quality of programs for children and youth and their families. The annual conference is a focal point of our many professional development activities and a learning opportunity you will not want to miss!
On Friday, our keynote speaker is author and service expert Petra Marquart. You didn't want to miss Petra’s inspirational message as she challenged us to find our inner champion.
On Saturday we continued the inspiration with a keynote by author and service provider Jeff Johnson. Jeff’s humor and nurturing message will help to brighten your smile and rededicate yourself to excellence. Each day the keynote session was followed by numerous workshops, all designed to support the unique professional development needs of early childhood and school age and youth professionals.
This year we are expanded our successful Innovation Stations. We hope that many of you will capitalize on this opportunity to share your program’s ideas and successes with hundreds of colleagues. And, this was a great place to pick up one or two new ideas to try in your program when you return from the conference.
We look forward to seeing you at the RiverCentre!
Lisa Walker, Conference Committee Chair and
Sharon Bergen, Executive Director, MnAEYC-MnSACA
