2021 BUILD Virtual Conference: Reinvent Early Care & Education Quality Improvement to Advance Racial Equity

July 19 - 22

The 2021 BUILD Conference will offer more than 30 learning sessions and three exciting plenaries to help state leaders explore what constitutes high quality early learning from the perspective of families, young children, and communities that are furthest from opportunity.

Research has shown that young children experience both short-and-long-term benefits from high-quality early care and education. But for Black children from families with low incomes, these high-quality experiences are often inaccessible. In addition, the comprehensiveness of services key to positive outcomes, including lifelong educational, developmental, and economic gains, are not prevalent in early care and education today.

Do you want to connect both formally and informally with early child care experts, sponsors, and colleagues interested in improving quality in early care and education?

Join us virtually on July 19 for one of seven pre-conference sessions, and July 20-22 for more than 30 learning sessions and three plenary sessions.

The registration rate for the plenaries and learning sessions, July 20-July 22 is $450.

There is an add-on for the pre-conference sessions on July 19, the total rate for the conference  plus preconference is $475.  You must register for pre-conference sessions at the same time you register for the general conference.

This year’s conference will be presented on the Socio virtual conference platform that will allow you to:

  • Hang out with your team, old friends and new ones via video lounges that accommodate up to 13 people.
  • Connect directly with sponsors through both our sponsor and networking receptions.
  • Live chat with presenters during their sessions with additional opportunities for in-depth Q&A with some speakers in the video lounges.
