In light of recent updates regarding COVID-19, we have made the decision to postpone our National Conference in New Orleans until next spring. Please note that Arts From The Start: An Exploration of Early Learning will now be held March 17 – 19, 2021.
We very much appreciate the continued enthusiasm and support we have received from conference registrants and presenters. We anticipate that rescheduling this conference will best enable us to present the dynamic convening we have planned, while safely welcoming as many attendees as possible to New Orleans! We will follow up with our scheduled conference speakers and facilitators to discuss your availability to present at next year’s dates.
- Please note that all paid registrations for 2020 will be honored at the 2021 convening. We anticipate an increase in conference registration rates for next year’s convening, but 2020 registrants who defer their registration will not be charged any additional fees! Consider this the early bird rate for 2021!
- Of course, we understand that not everyone will be available for the rescheduled conference date. For any registrants who are unable, or unsure about their availability, to join us during the rescheduled dates, a refund to the payment method used may be requested by filling out this form. The deadline to request registration refunds is March 31, 2020, at 5:00 PM ET. All refunds will be processed by May 1.
- Host Event tickets purchased a la carte will be refunded to the payment method provided.
We hope you will be able to join us for our 2021 convening in New Orleans. Details will be posted to our conference website https://conference.youngaudiences.org/ as they become available.
We are so grateful to our conference participants and presenters for their flexibility and understanding during this difficult time in our country and in our world. If you have any questions, we look forward to hearing from you!
