Celebration of Afterschool



March 3 & 4, 2017

Tan-Tar-A Resort and Conference Center

Join us March 3 & 4 to celebrate the professionals, programs, and champions that make Afterschool Work! in Missouri.  Our two day conference will feature a special recognition luncheon on Friday at noon and a special keynote session on Saturday.  Up to 7.25 clock hours available with “partnership” focused workshops to choose from.  The recognition luncheon is included in the Celebration of Afterschool registration or may be purchased separately for additional guests.

Want to recognize a program, professional, or partner?  The recognition luncheon is a special time to honor afterschool professionals for attaining their educational milestones (associates, bachelors, graduate degrees) and for their years of service in the field.  Programs also receive recognition for earning accreditation and for years of service to the children, youth, and families in their communities.  Years of service recognition is in 5-year increments, or in the year of retirement.  You can also nominate a special community partner for recognition of their support to your program and afterschool.

Please use this link to submit information about individuals, programs, and partners to be recognized at the March 3, 2017 Celebration of Afterschool recognition luncheon.  (Recognition Nomination Survey)  Note:  All honorees will receive a discount code to deduct the cost of the luncheon from the conference registration fee.

Interested in helping shape the future of afterschool in Missouri?  Plan to arrive early for the quarterly Afterschool Committee Meetings from 9:30-11:30.  Choose from Funding & Sustainability, Professional Development, Public Policy and Awareness, Quality, and STEM and get involved!
