A Recap of the 2015 Leadership Connections™ National Conference
556 attendees (Record- setting!)
29 states represented (Record- setting!)
47 sessions offered (Record- setting!)
It’s hard to believe that the Leadership Connections™ national conference ended over a week ago.
We could offer you a recap of the most popular sessions. We could recap the conference by talking about the award winners, keynote speakers, and networking sessions. Or, we could write about the success of the numerous program changes we made this year. We could even recap it by merely sharing our Twitter stream of “golden nuggets” tweeted with the conference hashtag #LCNC15.
But that’s not the point of Leadership Connections. The point is in the conference’s name….for Leaders to Connect.
This year early childhood leaders connected over a message of discovering hope when it seems to have left. They connected over the realization that powerful interactions take place at eye level and at all times of day, and that sometimes, all you need is a little humor. They even connected in-person with their fellow social media colleagues.
Personally, my favorite tweet was from Joanne Wegiel:
What a connection to make!
Because, we’re all traveling the same road, pushing toward quality improvement in early care and education for the sake of this generation and all of those to come. Our hope is that the 556 attendees from 29 states made lasting connections, be those connections “ah ha!” moments like the one above, or the kind of connections that lead to collaborations and support down the road.
That’s the point of Leadership Connections.
We look forward to seeing you next year!
