2018 CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS

2018 CONFERENCE 2018-11-06T11:21:25+00:00

2018 SEL Conference Huge Success

We enjoyed a diverse turnout of 500 guests from all over the United States and Canada.

  • 35% were in administration/management
  • 27% were emotional or behavioral support staff (including psychologists, social workers and school counselors)
  • 21% were educators providing direct instruction to children
  • 17% were other educators not providing direct instruction

Our conference topics were almost as diverse as our attendees and feedback was incredible.

“I really enjoyed the keynote, Dr. Brooks. I felt that he was charismatic, read the room well, but more impressively he shared so many resources and a lot of information with his time that was productive.”

“Excellent! I learned quite a bit and will be able to use and have used what I learned. I shared information on the car ride back with others who missed out on this great session.”

“Just keep holding this conference! It was even more awesome than last year.”

Join us again in 2019 as we expand and reach even more individuals and organizations committed to improving the lives of children and families.
