Imagine 2014 Conference

IMAGINE conf_logo1 

This year’s Mississippi Early Childhood Association’s  Imagine Conference will be held October 8, 9 and 10 at the beautiful Thad Cochran Conference Center on the campus of The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg.

Since you are the ones who are always focused on taking care of others:  your family, your children, your co-workers, etc., we chose a theme for this year’s conference that will enable us to pamper YOU for a few days.  “Imagine 2014:  Renewed, Refreshed and Recharged” will offer all of us the opportunity to renew our minds and spirits, refresh our bodies and souls and recharge our hearts and brains!

While relaxing in a beautiful venue with opportunities for massages, manicures, snacking and dancing, you will be able to hear and learn from some of the best presenters around such as Dr. Jean and Janie Walters.  We are planning for many of the traditional events such as exciting keynotes and break-out sessions as well as some new events like a “spa night” and a reception to honor our past leaders.

And students – we are thinking of  you!  We will have events planned especially with you in mind!  Definitely something for everyone will be found at conference this year!  Be sure and watch our website and facebook page for updates on the conference.  We’re excited and want you to make plans now to join us….it won’t be the same without you!
