National Leadership Conference


Leadership Connections brings together early childhood administrators, family child care providers, trainers, technical assistance specialists, consultants, college instructors, researchers, and policymakers to hear inspiring keynote speakers, take part in a public policy forum, attend skill-building sessions, and network with other leaders in the field.

Last year, in the conference’s 16th year, 624 leaders representing 37 states and 3 countries joined us.
