The 2017 Region V Leadership and Professional Development Conference comes at a pivotal time in the history of Head Start.  We need strong leadership in our community as never before.  We need decisive and thoughtful leaders at every level who are knowledgeable, well trained and deeply rooted in the world of Head Start.

This conference will address these leadership challenges and more.  We will look at the current landscape and climate for early childhood education and Head Start’s place in that landscape.  We will closely look at the new Standards, the Monitoring System framed around those Standards and how this all impacts local programs.  We will closely examine what it takes to be a Head Start leader in these times and the conference content will support Leadership Development at every organizational level.

The 2017 Region V Conference will also provide the unique opportunity for participants to engage with Federal Staff and Regional Office staff to address national, regional and state specific issues.
