How to thrive at the Rocky Mountain Early Childhood Conference

Ask anyone who has participated at the Rocky Mountain Early Childhood Conference in years past, and they will tell you RMECC is an enriching experience for anyone enthusiastic about early childhood education! The event is packed with opportunities for learning, networking, and professional growth. Navigating the conference effectively takes some mindful planning and goal setting to ensure you make the most of your time there.


Before heading to RMECC, take some time to reflect on your goals for the conference and devise a game plan. By setting clear objectives and prioritizing your interests, you'll be better equipped to maximize your experience. Consider these questions:


·       What specific areas of early childhood education do I want to learn more about?

·       Am I looking to connect with fellow educators or explore new teaching strategies?

·       Do I want to discover innovative tools and techniques for my classroom?

·       Are there particular speakers or workshops I want to attend?

·       Do I aim to expand my professional network or seek new career opportunities?


Take advantage of the resources provided by RMECC, such as the conference website and mobile app, to plan your schedule and access essential information about sessions, speakers, and exhibitors. These tools will help streamline your experience and ensure you don't miss any key opportunities. There will even be game challenges and door prizes for the winning, and be sure to catch the social hour on Friday at the end of the day’s sessions!


If you’re attending as part of a team, consider delegating tasks or responsibilities. Divide and conquer by assigning different sessions or workshops to team members, allowing for comprehensive coverage and knowledge sharing.


Take advantage of the attendee list provided by RMECC in the mobile app to identify individuals you'd like to connect with. Reach out beforehand to introduce yourself and express your interest in meeting.


Prioritize attending the educational sessions most relevant to your personal professional development. Balance your time wisely to ensure you benefit from both learning opportunities and networking interactions.


By approaching RMECC with a clear plan, an open mind, and a willingness to engage with others, you'll enhance your experience and emerge with valuable insights and connections to enrich your practice as an early childhood educator. We can’t wait to see you there!
