Link n' Learn

Link ‘n Learn is a relationship-building workshop, and is a means for educational consultants and member programs to become better acquainted. The NATSAP/IECA Link ‘n Learn is limited to 18 to 25 member programs and 15 - 22 educational consultants.

The programs and educational consultants will be scheduled to meet each other over a series of appointments, lasting 20 minutes. At the end of each appointment, a NATSAP representative will signal the participants to move on to the next appointment.

This is a great opportunity for educational consultants to learn more about specific programs and widen their knowledge base for the benefits of the children and families that they serve. The Link ‘n Learn workshop is free to educational consultants. Hotel accommodations (1 night) at the hotel in Washington, D.C., the Tuesday evening reception, breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided at no cost to you. NOTE: Travel expenses are not covered.


The next Link n' Learn workshop will be held in conjunction with IECA's Fall Conference.
