Pre-Conference Session September 27th
Registration is now open!
Please join MPPI and advocates from across the country at our annual Advocacy Conference at the Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook (Chicago) this September. The conference will offer workshops and plenary sessions from MPPI staff and field experts that will equip you to tackle policy challenges in your state. Click here to see the full schedule. As always, the event offers valuable opportunities for networking with Montessori advocates and leaders from across the country.
This year's gathering offers an optional "Advocacy 101" workshop on Friday afternoon, 9/27. If you haven't attended one of the MPPI Conferences in the past, we recommend attending this informative session so you will be prepared for the more advanced content during the conference sessions Saturday and Sunday.
The full conference runs from Saturday morning to Sunday noon. We hope you can join us for the full event, but we are offering a Saturday only registration for individuals who are only able to come for one day.
We have passed the deadline for guaranteed rooms at the headquarters hotel, the Hyatt Lodge. You may still be able to book a room through their public reservation site. Or, we have arranged a special rate at the Hyatt House, which is very close to the Hyatt Lodge. The group rate is available at the Hyatt House for Friday - Sunday, but you must book by 9/13/19.
We have a limited number of registration and registration+ lodging scholarships to offer those who need financial support to make attendance at this event possible. Montessorians of the Global Majority/of Color who are underrepresented in the Montessori community and need financial support to attend the retreat are especially encouraged to apply. For more information and to request assistance, please complete this form.
Attendees can register a guest to join them at the Saturday evening reception for $75.
Please send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
