HINGE February Speaking Engagements


GCCA Savannah Owners’ & Directors’ Conference
HINGE Founder & CEO Kathy Ligon is the Keynote Speaker for the 2019 Savannah Owners’ & Directors’ Conference at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah, GA on Saturday, February 9.

Kathy’s keynote, “No Money, No Mission: Cost Control in the Childcare Business” will discuss healthy spending tactics and how best to manage staff-related costs within the childcare business. During the workshop, she will cover current trends and challenges within the childcare industry as well as share her coveted benchmarking tool to show how attendees’ schools compare to the average financially healthy school.

We always enjoy attending GCCA’s wonderful member events and cannot wait to see some familiar faces (and meet some new ones!) in Savannah on February 9!

HINGE is a Gold Level Vendor Partner for GCCA.
