AEOE Statewide Virtual Conference 2020

While we will miss being together in person, we are looking forward to connecting virtually and advancing our learning collectively. We hope you will join us for some or all of the day! 



9:30 a.m. – Welcome & opening

9:45 a.m. - 4 p.m. – Workshops* offered on a range of topics throughout the day. There will be five workshop blocks, with 4-5 workshops offered during each block. More information on session topics will be coming soon.

4 p.m. – Closing & Howard Bell Award Honoree

*Many of the workshops will be recorded in case you aren't able to attend on the day of the conference. We will also have several pre-recorded sessions available for you to watch on your own. These videos will launch on the day of the conference in addition to our live workshops and be available beyond that as part of our new Professional Development Online Library.



Given the current and ongoing financial hardship that many of us are facing right now, we are offering this day of learning free of charge. Like many of you, AEOE has also been impacted financially by COVID-19. If you are able to support us with a donation, we would greatly appreciate it. If a donation isn't possible, please consider becoming a member. While membership is not a requirement for participation, our strength is built on the collective voice of environmental and outdoor education professionals around the state, and our small but dedicated team relies on membership dues to sustain the work we do. We truly appreciate your support.

To register, you must complete this form. We will email you the agenda and links to join workshop sessions. We can't wait to see you on May 29th!
