Illinois Head Start Association - Event Information

Event Name:
Statewide Directors' Meetings

Event Type(s):
Administration (CEO, Executive Directors, Directors, Delegates, Recipients, etc.)

Description:

STATEWIDE HEAD START AND EARLY HEAD START
DIRECTORS' IN PERSON MEETING:


Come together with leaders from various backgrounds - both new and experienced - at the statewide gathering of HS/EHS Directors meetings. This gathering of HS/EHS Directors meetings is an essential event where we can come together to connect, reflect, learn, and build. It's not just about education or networking; it's a powerful platform for problem-solving and creating value that you can directly apply within your own agencies.

This year, we are implementing a hybrid approach, combining in-person and virtual components. We have planned to alternate between in-person meetings and virtual gatherings every month, selecting various Head Start or Early Head Start locations for our in-person sessions.

To start, we will begin with a virtual meeting, followed by an in-person meeting the following month. The meetings will continue to alternate the 3rd Thursday of every month.

The opportunity to be in different spaces together offers a valuable learning experience, inspiring us, fostering the exchange of challenges, and celebrating achievements. We deeply appreciate programs who willingly open their doors and participate in sharing their facilities, learning environment, culture, and more.

If you would like to host a meeting in your meeting space suitable for approximately 20 individuals, along with a tour of your exceptional center contact Cathy Welsh @ cwelsh@ilheadstart.org.
