Keynote Speaker: Vernon Mason

Directing a child care program has its challenges; one of the biggest is staffing concerns.  In this keynote, the presenter, who has been a director for 26 years, will give examples of how directors can support their staff, reduce staff turnover, raise staff morale and build dedication for little or no cost.   Participants will be asked to share innovative ideas that they have used as well as obstacles in achieving desired outcomes.  Participants will leave with practical information to put to immediate use in their program.
