2021 Annual Conference

  • 1.  2021 Annual Conference

    Posted 11-01-2021 04:10 PM
    Hi, has it been announced when the conference brochure will be available? I am looking forward to attending and am wanting to plan my schedule. I used the itinerary planner to find the workshops I want to attend. I can't seem to find the day/time they will be available. Thanks for your help!

    Will there be a meeting of the science interest forum? I'd love to chat about science with others.

    Hi Jen,

    I have been looking, too, and based on the email today, it seems like the schedule won't be available until the "first full day" on Sunday. I really wish that it was organized differently so that we could better plan our sessions ahead of time!

    I would appreciate if someone could let me know if I'm misunderstanding the information!

    I haven't received any correspondence from NAEYC today. I, too, wish I could plan out my schedule in advance.

    Hello everyone,

    We are also excited to kick off Annual Conference. There will be a flipbook with more information to help in your planning that will be released tomorrow. Our virtual platform opens on Saturday at Noon ET in which you'll be able to set up your profile, explore exhibitor booths and set up your agenda for presentations you'd like to attend.

    Will this flipbook be emailed when it is available, or do we need to navigate the NAEYC website to find it?

    Mary,

    None of our staff received the flipbook yesterday. Was it emailed or do we find it on the NAEYC website?

    I appreciate any information so that we can navigate the conference with ease.

    Is there an event platform or some other place with times/dates and links for sessions?  I've browsed the conference brochure and the itinerary planner, but still Sunday at 11am I don't see any of that information and wonder if I've missed something?

    I'm not sure if this link is personalized, but this is the program; you can flip through it or you can download it as a pdf https://issuu.com/naeyc/docs/2021_ac_flipbook_final

    You can also find it in your email that we got on 11/5 as our daily digest!
