The 2020 HIPPY USA National Conference is about sharing and collaborating on big ideas and encouraging bold thinking toward our approach in home visiting and early childhood education. It is also about the range of other resources we provide that support our parents in their efforts to prepare their youngsters to reach their highest potential in the classrooms and lifelong.
With more announcements to come, we welcome Pilar Torres, president of education consulting company Fathum: Learning Solutions as our opening conference speaker! Ms. Torres will share her passion for closing the achievement gap for low-income, underserved children by using innovative strategies and leveraging technology.
New and exciting this year is the Meet Up Lounge! With our forthcoming mobile app, you can choose your topics and meet up with others and take part in meaningful conversations, thought leadership, and collaborations. These convenings also serve as a venue to widen your networking opportunities.
Need more incentive to register? You are automatically entered into a drawing for a Carnival cruise for two compliments of Visit Mobile, one of our Conference partners. Carnival Fantasy offers year-round voyages from Mobile to ports in the Western Caribbean including, Cozumel, Progresso, and Costa Maya. The winner will be announced during the opening reception.
We look forward to sharing more details with you about speakers, sessions, fun attendee experiences, special events and the culturally engaging and entertaining city of Mobile.
Our goal is that you leave the 2020 National Conference feeling more inspired, informed, and connected with other attendees and ready to put big ideas and bold thoughts into action for our families.
