Filling the Educator Pipeline: Summit for Action II Registration

AAFCS convened the Filling the FCS Educator Pipeline: Summit for Action! as part of the 2015 Annual Conference and is working with other stakeholders in the national Say Yes to FCS campaign focused on recruitment of educators for the discipline. Consistent with the need for sustained effort over time and building on findings, strategies, and momentum from the Summit for Action in 2015, Filling the FCS Educator Pipeline: Summit for Action II! will take place at the 2016 Annual Conference & Expo. Summit II will enable those new to the educator recruitment effort to design and implement campaigns specific to their circumstances. Likewise, Summit II will showcase, support, and advance successful educator recruitment models and strategies to help campaign veterans maximize the initiative’s impact.

Summit II Registration rates are $20 more than Full Registration rates, and include a ticket for the "Elevate Your Health" Reception, a ticket to the Friday Summit II Luncheon, and a ticket to the Pacesetter Luncheon. You will have the chance to select the Summit Registration as one of your options when you click on the Register Online button.
