APRIL 10-12, 2014


We would like to welcome each of you to the Ohio Early Care & Education Conference. As a matter of fact, we'd love for you to stop by the registration desk and introduce yourself to us so we can personally welcome you! The conference is a one-stop shop of exciting opportunities to learn something new, validate what you do and celebrate your accomplishments! We thank you for your commitment to continued learning and your passion for helping young children to reach their potential! We hope you will make the most of the opportunity to hear, see and learn from both speakers and colleagues while you attend the largest gathering of "ECE Enthusiasts" in Ohio. Start up a conversation with someone you don’t know, stretch your learning in keynotes and workshops, and take advantage of the exhibitors who are ready to share new services and products with you. Keep your eyes and ears open at all times — the opportunities to learn will be everywhere! We hope you plan time to relax and reflect, have some fun and enjoy the company of your fellow early childhood professionals whether you’re in workshops, exploring the exhibit hall, attending a special event or taking time to experience Columbus!

Conference Information The Ohio Early Care and Education Conference provides a forum in which individuals can discuss issues vital to those who work on behalf of children and families. Although we encourage the exchange of diverse opinions, the ideas and handouts presented at the conference do not necessarily reflect the positions of the Ohio Association for the Education of Young Children (Ohio AEYC). Ohio AEYC assumes no responsibility for any statement of fact or opinion presented at the conference, nor does the acceptance of advertising or exhibits imply endorsement of any products or services by Ohio AEYC.

Don’t forget to bring your agenda & name badge! Agenda and Name Badge Your personal conference agenda and name badge are your admittance to workshops and the Exhibit Hall E/F. Please wear your name badge not only as a courtesy to other attendees, but also as an indication that you are registered. Present your agenda to pick up optional items purchased with registration such as t-shirts, books and box lunches. Conference Check-In and Conference Materials When you arrive at the conference, you will need to go to the conference check-in counters located in Exhibit Hall E/F to pick up your conference bag with your name badge holder and professional credit sheet. Handouts Click here to access the conference workshop handouts. Not all workshops have handouts. All handouts are provided in printable PDF format. Free Wi-Fi is available at the Convention Center if you wish to view your handouts on your smart device. Should you print your handouts, choose the printer settings that work best for you and your printer (single or two-sided, draft, black ink only, etc.) A $10.00 fee will be charged to print handouts. Workshop Attendance and Room Numbers When you arrive at your workshop, a Workshop Greeter will welcome you and check your agenda to confirm you’re pre-registered for the workshop. If you would like to attend a workshop not on your agenda, keep in mind how our system works to honor pre-registered attendees. Pre-registered attendees are seated first. However, ten minutes after the workshop begins, all open seats are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Professional Credit Form At the completion of each session, Workshop Greeters will distribute stickers that serve as proof of attendance necessary for professional credit. Participants should place the stickers on the professional credit form that is provided. The stickers and professional credit sheet cannot be replaced if lost. KEEP YOUR FORM! DO NOT TURN IT IN! IMPORTANT: Review the instructions on the back of the form for each type of professional credit. Special instructions are provided for CSWMFT credit.
