Submit your workshop proposal online HERE. We encourage you to submit your workshop proposal by Friday, April 12, 2019 by 5 PM.

Why Present at Summit?

Each year, the ECE Summit provides attendees with a unique, cross systems professional development opportunity.  The Summit bridges the gap between Pennsylvania’s early learning programs by bringing together presenters and staff from Child Care, Head Start/Early Head Start, Pre-K, Home Visitation and Early Intervention.  Past presenters have frequently commented on the richness that this diversity brings to the conversations that take place in their workshops.

Presenter Benefits

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.
