    Hello Karen,

    Thank you so much for posting this message! I always have had an interest in this area.  You mentioned that there will even be a meet-up group to share your interest and idea. That's great!! However, I live in the Midwest area, specifically Columbus, OH. Do you know anyone that live in this side of the world that have similar interest that I can also meet up with? Please share your thoughts/recommendations.

    Hi I live in Defiance, Ohio.  I am a consultant with my own business that I am just beginning. Holistic Education INC.  I would be interested in a meet up in Ohio.  I am a Monitessori teacher, movement therapist and work with young people with autism.  Who else lives in Ohio that we could collaborate with?

    I'm interested in both. How can a teacher in Colorado join in?

    Hi Karen,

    Sorry to be missing PLI and the Consultant and Authors Interest Forum get together this year! I am leaving for the ECE Leadership Retreat I am running in Italy on June 14th and trying to squeeze in PLI was not possible. The Interest Forum get-together is always a highlight of the conference for me.

    Please send along any updates! Hope to see you soon.

    Hi Karen,

    I'm definitely interested! I'm juggling a few events that week with the Institute and some personal things, but I'd love to join you all at the meet up if I can!

    What a good idea!  I think a virtual meetup is great since we are from all over. I am a movement teacher at my local YMCA and prior to that taught weekly movement classes at a co-operative preschool.  When I moved out of state, my previous director asked me for all my lessons to give to the next teacher.  I self-published my primary lessons... and submitted it to a publisher.  Would love to hear about other people's experiences.

    Hi, Mary.
    Our interest forum has hosted several webinars to provide that virtual connection you're talking about. We will try to set something up again. In the meantime, we will add you to our mailing list to keep you informed.

    Thanks!

    Hi Christine--

    You should also go ahead and sign up for the forum so that you will be in the forum's resource space and on the official roster.

    Here's instructions from: Help/FAQs - HELLO

    A: You may join interest forums online in NAEYC's membership database:  

    <g">http://www.naeyc.org/memberlogin"><g class="gr_ gr_366 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling" id="366" data-gr-id="366">Login</g> here, click "my profile" and choose "change information" from the menu at the right. Double check your email address is correct, then move down the screen to the area that allows you to add and remove interest forums. After choosing which interest forums you'd like to add or remove, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click "update information" to save your changes.

    Please note: Information from the membership database is synched manually to Hello, a process that occurs every 24-48 hours.  However, on <g class="gr_ gr_333 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Punctuation only-ins replaceWithoutSep" id="333" data-gr-id="333">occasion</g> It may take up to a week for your change in interest forums to reflect in Hello.

    Hello Dawn!!

    I just accepted your request to join! I am just not sure how to navigate communication with Ohio, specifically Columbus folks!

    Do you mind advising on the next steps? I like the idea of meet up in June! Do you have any potential dates and times in mind? Just wanted to get it on my calendar! Let me know. Thanks!

    Hello Again Karen & the authors group,

    Do any of you have publishing experience??

    I could use some advice and tips.  I am reviewing a contract now with a publisher.

    First time and would really appreciate any advice or tips!
