Dear NAEYC Colleague: As your professional association, we strive to inform and support your efforts in the critical fields of early childhood education and child development. NAEYC is committed to ensuring that those in early childhood education have access to the highest quality preparation and professional development. We also recognize how important it is to convene and network, to share stories and lessons about the rewards and challenges we confront on a daily basis. Our Annual Conference does just that--it allows us to come together to discover, to inspire and be inspired, and to engage. The NAEYC Annual Conference is the world's largest gathering of early childhood educators and, as such, offers professional development featuring more than 1,000 sessions organized over 40 topic tracks. The topics and themes reflect the essence of NAEYC and of the early childhood field: research, policy, and practice. Our distinguished presenters are many: the 2011 Keynote Address will be given by renowned educator, author, and MacArthur Genius Grant recipient, Vivian Gussin Paley; our Closing General Session will be led by bestselling author and NEA award-winner, Pam Muñoz Ryan; and in between are countless sessions led by a broad array of compelling researchers, experts, and practitioners speaking to the latest developments in early childhood education. Join us in sunny Orlando this November. Enjoy the natural beauty, attractions, and just plain fun that Orlando has to offer. Gather with old friends and make new ones. Listen to progressive ideas and approaches that will inform and inspire your work in early childhood. And reconnect with your professional association NAEYC and all it has to offer you now and in the future. We look forward to greeting you at the 2011 NAEYC Annual Conference & Expo and we thank you for your continued commitment to young children, the early childhood profession, and continued excellence in our field. Stephanie Fanjul NAEYC Governing Board President Jerlean Daniel NAEYC Executive Director

Please stay only at an official NAEYC hotel!

When NAEYC brings the Annual Conference into a city, we negotiate with hotels to block a sufficient number of guest rooms for attendees. For 2011, NAEYC has contracted with 14 Orlando properties to enhance your Annual Conference experience. We want you to feel safe and secure and to enjoy the hospitality of high-quality accommodations. You deserve it! Keep in mind that if NAEYC does not fulfill our contractual obligations with these hotels, the Association will be required to pay significant financial penalties. Please support your professional association by making your reservation with an NAEYC official hotel. Thank you.

Hotel room rates for the NAEYC 2011 Annual Conference & Expo include a fee that is provided to the Association to subsidize the costs of Conference meeting space, shuttle bus services, and other related services.
