Conference Planning Committee

The UNK-Community Early Childhood Conference is a collaborative conference serving all of Nebraska, particularly Central Nebraska’s rural Early Care and Education Workforce. In an effort to plan for the unique needs of this target population, the conference planning committee is comprised of both UNK Faculty and other Early Childhood experts serving Central Nebraska. If you are interested in working with the planning committee please contact Dr. Paula Thompson (contact information below).
