The Region VII Head Start Association is seeking presenters for the 2022 in-person Leadership Conference scheduled for Oct 25-27 (with pre-conference sessions offered on 10/24). The annual conference will be held at the Sheraton Hotel at the Overland Park Kansas Convention Center. It is anticipated that 350 to 400 attendees, including Head Start & Early Head Start program executive directors, program directors, senior level managers, center site managers, front-line staff, specialists, and community partners will be in attendance. Workshop content and instruction should be focused on early childhood education within the scope of the Head Start program. Adult learning principles should be applied and used throughout presentations providing the learner an opportunity to broaden their depth of knowledge in a particular subject matter.
The annual conference is designed to create an "experience" where attendees are inspired to learn, network and exchange strategies that serve to have a positive impact on the local Head Start community as well as enhance the attendee’s personal professional development journey and overall well-being.
