2018 Presenters


Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 2018 Early Childhood Summit!  Since the first Summit in 2008, our goal has been to bring together all of those who care for and educate the Commonwealth’s young children, giving them a forum to collaborate, network, and share best practices.  Attendees can earn up to 24 hours of PQAS and Act 48 approved training.  Attracting more than 1,000 participants from across Pennsylvania, the Summit is the must-attend event for the early childhood education community.

The 2018 Summit will be held at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center in State College, PA from Monday, October 15 through Wednesday, October 17, 2018.

We recognize the vital role of presenters in the success of the Summit and value your time and expertise.  For accepted proposals we waive the registration fee for the LEAD presenter on the day of their workshop presentation, and offer a reduced, single day presenter registration fee of $100/day for any day that a lead presenter attends the Summit but isn’t presenting.  This entitles you to all food included in the registration fee that day and gives you the ability to attend workshops and earn professional development credits yourself.

In addition, up to one co-presenter per session is eligible for a reduced co-presenter rate of $73 for any day that they are co-presenting in a workshop. This co-presenter is also eligible for a reduced single day registration fee of $110/day for any day that he/she attends but is not presenting.

To be considered for this year’s Summit, please submit your proposal as soon as possible. The program committee has begun their review.
