2018 Oregon Parenting Educators Conference –  The 2018 Oregon Parenting Educators Conference will be held on Monday, May 21, 2018 on the campus of Oregon State University. This is a fantastic opportunity to access quality professional development and network with other professionals right here in our beautiful state, and our guest speaker will be Ross Thompson. We invite you to share this information with your networks, highlight it on your websites, and/or post it on your preferred social media venues (Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc.)

Also, if you are interested in sharing your expertise by leading a workshop, we will be releasing the workshop ‘Request for Proposals’ in November. Additional information will be included in a future email.
