Parent Leadership Conference
The Parent Leadership Conference is a Wrap!
Conference Resources Available Below
Designed by parents for parents, this interactive VIRTUAL, three-weekend event was created to build connections between families and grow together as families!
Each weekend kicked off Friday night with music, dancing, family activities, and a chance to connect with parents from all around the state.
Saturday was a chance for parents and caregivers to rejuvenate themselves with fresh information and ideas about meeting the challenges of parenting. Attendees heard from other parents as well as local and national leaders about issues that make a difference in the lives of today's families.
