A Message From Conference Co-Chairs

Dr. Tiffany Young

Dear Educators, 

We hope your

school year is off to a great start!  After some research, seeking feedback from administrators from across the state, and a special board meeting, the board voted to do a virtual conference in place of our scheduled in-person 2022 conference.  This was a difficult decision, however, considering the current situation with COVID-19 and the substitute shortage we determined we needed to work to best meet the needs of schools and teachers.  We are looking forward to creating a great virtual experience as we pursue our mission to lead in the promotion of literacy in the state of Nebraska through collaboration, advocacy and professional development.  We will be in touch soon with more details.  We hope you will join us!

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 2020 CONFERENCE

  • "I took something away from every session which I rarely ever say about a conference."

  • "I was very impressed with the speakers I listened to and how organized the conference was.  I honestly learned a lot."
  • "The facilities were top notch, the food was delicious and most importantly the session topics and organization of sessions were very organized and efficient to meet participant needs! The Exhibit Hall was inviting and easy to access as well as easy access to visit with representatives/vendors."
  • "Top quality speakers for all sessions made it hard to choose which sessions to attend - a great problem to have!"

  • "This was a great conference! I took away many important lessons, got to make connections with lots of people, grew professionally and gained ideas for my teaching."

  • "I felt so inspired and renewed after after attending this conference! It's so great to have things reiterated that I maybe forgot, or to learn something new. Opportunities for networking were plentiful."
