“Seasons Through Virginia’s Regions”

The most important part of our conference are the sessions and workshops given by experts in their fields - that's you! Do you have an EE program that is specific to your region? Does your organization work toward equity and inclusivity? Did you find an innovative way to adapt during the times of COVID? We’d like to know about it!

While we are unable to host our typical annual conference in 2021, we are excited to mix things up with 3 virtual mini-conferences throughout the year. Each day will highlight one of Virginia’s different regions, seasonal changes, and the educators that work within that area. We will have the space to offer up to 9, 50-minute sessions on each date.

Presenters are required to be registered for, at least, the day of the conference for which they will be presenting. We encourage you to attend the entire series.
