2018 SAZAEYC Conference Proposal
Powering Our Profession: Leadership and Learning
Southern Arizona Association for the Education of Young Children Annual Conference
November 3, 2018

Call for Presenters
Proposals EXTENDED to Monday, June 25

The 2018 SAZAEYC Annual Conference is an excellent opportunity to:
-Share the knowledge and best practices that you use
-Contribute to early childhood educators’ professional learning – beyond the mandated professional development
-Build your own and your colleagues’ sense of professionalism and commitment to young children
-Network with fellow professionals in the early childhood community

We are interested in reaching out to new voices and new audiences at the conference. If you have not presented before, we encourage you to submit a proposal. We also want to increase the number of presentations that are offered in Spanish and/or bilingually. Please consider submitting a proposal and helping us increase the diversity of voices in our community.

As we move forward in identifying our Profession and the Field of Early Childhood, it is important that we align our work to agencies that support and guide our practice. The Arizona Early Childhood Workforce Knowledge and Competencies identify the basic knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for early childhood professionals across all sectors of early care and education, early intervention, mental health, physical health, and social services/child welfare working with expectant parents, infants, toddlers, and young children birth to age eight and their families.

Therefore, please consider these eight Core Knowledge Areas when submitting your application:

Child Growth and Development
Curriculum and Learning Environment
Child Observation and Assessment
Effective Interactions
Health, Safety, and Nutrition
Family and Community Partnerships
Program Management
(Arizona Early Childhood Workforce Knowledge and Competencies, 2015)

Presentation/workshop proposals for the conference may be submitted through Google Forms.
