2018 Presenters


Thank you to all of our 2018 Presenters! We value your time and expertise and understand that when you present at the 2018 Early Childhood Education Summit, you are sharing more than your knowledge.  For that reason, we waive the registration fee for all LEAD presenters on the day of your workshop presentation, and offer you a reduced, single day presenter registration fee of $100/day for any day that you attend the Summit but aren’t presenting.  This entitles you to all food included in the registration fee that day, as gives you the ability to attend workshops and earn professional development credits yourself.  In addition, one co-presenter is eligible for a reduced co-presenter rate of $73 for any day that they are co-presenting in a workshop.


  • The 2018 Summit will be held at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center, 215 Innovation Blvd, State College, PA 16803.  For directions click HERE.
  • The Summit provides Act 48 and DHS credits to attendees that request them.  Presenters are asked to facilitate this process and are provided with the needed sign-in sheets, evaluations and instructions.
  • To maximize the amount of space available, the majority of rooms at the Summit will be set theater style.  There are a very limited number of rooms that will be set classroom style, providing attendees with a writing surface.  If you feel that your workshop would be delivered best with this room set, please make sure to contact Kayle Richardson to find out if this is possible.  You can reach her at kayle@paheadstart.org.
  • All Summit rooms are equipped with a flip chart, dry erase board & markers, a screen, a power source and a head table for materials. Because of the large number of concurrent workshops (up to 25 at any given Session time!) and high rental costs, Summit rooms will NOT have laptops, projectors, or audio equipment.  Presenters who wish to use a PowerPoint presentation will need to provide their own laptop, projector, and speakers.  If you need information about renting equipment directly from the Conference Center, Kayle Richardson (kayle@paheadstart.org) can provide you with contact information for Penn Stater staff that can assist you.


To help us ensure that we are prepared for everyone, ALL presenters are required to register for the Summit and let us know when you will be on-site, even if you only plan on being present for your own presentation.

Presenters have received instructions for how to register.  If presenters have any questions about registration or how to use the discount codes they should o contact Kayle Richardson 717-831-8375 or Maureen Murphy at 717-657-9000 x 107.
