2017 Child Care Aware® of America Policy Summit
April 23 @ 8:00 am - April 25 @ 5:00 pm$249
The Child Care Aware® of America Policy Summit is an event addressing policy, practice, and the future of the early childhood field. The Policy Summit will engage professionals in the field and our Child Care Works grassroots advocates and provide information on policy that informs, educates, and assists attendees in building their policy strategies.
Sessions will cover action items around discussing public policy as well as legislation and regulations with policymakers across the local, state, and federal levels. Finally, the Policy Summit will include our annual Day on the Hill event, giving child care advocates an opportunity to put the skills they have learned into action, meet with their Congressional representatives, and position child care initiatives at the forefront of the political conversation.
We are pleased to announce that Paul Schmitz, CEO of Leading Inside Out, will be the opening plenary speaker.
