HINGE is Going to China!

Eight hundred early childhood professionals from 80 different countries will gather together in Macao, China for the World Forum this April 8-11, and we are thrilled to announce that three of our HINGE team members will be joining them!

Kathy Ligon, Kathe Petchel and Molly Petchel have all been chosen to speak at this year’s awe-inspiring World Forum event. Kathy Ligon will moderate a session on private sector participation, Kathe Petchel will present Developing Leaders from Within and Molly will introduce Family Engagement-Parent Education Strategies.

At the event, topics including organizational culture, growth management, future trends, brain development and maintaining consistent quality will be presented by childcare leaders from the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia/Pacific. There will also be multiple opportunities to make valuable connections with speakers and attendees. This is a can’t-miss conference (not unlike SHIFT) that will change your life as a childcare professional.

The World Forum has provided a special offer to friends of HINGE: Anyone who registers before the end of February will be treated to a $50 dinner coupon at Bene – the Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel’s signature restaurant. Simply use promo code MacaoBene when you register.

If you’re interested in attending and want to learn more, please visit the World Forum website at www.wordlforumfoundation.org/events/. We hope to see you there!
