2016 Keynote

A Message from Executive Director Camille Maben

Thank you to those who attended the 2016 Child Health, Education, and Care Summit on November 8–10. We appreciate attendees who completed the on-line survey; your comments will be used to enhance future Summits. We implemented many of your suggestions at the 2016 Summit, such as offering healthier meal choices, including more sessions on QRIS, and ending the Summit earlier. We intend to adhere to the same commitment to you in 2018.

During the three days, we had attendees from a variety of backgrounds, dynamic keynote speakers, 15 pre-summit workshops, 52 sessions, and an engaging post session with Dr. Junlei Li. In addition, the Los Angeles Universal Preschool hosted the reception-movie night featuring the documentary, The Beginning of Life.

Here’s a sampling of some of the results and feedback we received from the survey. The majority of attendees said the Summit:

  • Was well organized, inspirational, and felt the information provided was useful in their professional work.
  • Improved their knowledge and networking opportunities.

Additionally, an overwhelming number of participants responded that they would attend the next Summit. Planning has already begun on the 2018 Child Health, Education, and Care Summit. We hope to see you there.
