Are you as fired up about the Fall Conference as we are?!?! Maybe not, but that's okay, we’ll get you there! We continue to plan and progress as the time approaches! Our theme this year is Revolutionizing the Basics: Making Education Work for Gifted Learners. We are also very excited about our keynote speakers: Ian Byrd of byrdseed.com and Dr. Scott Peters, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, a highly respected researcher in the field of giftedness. Watch for announcements about our teen track and some new offerings for parents as well! But, most importantly, mark your calendars and make your reservations for October 3 and 4 at the Wilderness Resort in the Wisconsin Dells! See you there!
