How to maximize your participation at our conferences.


Each NHSA event presents the Head Start community with unique opportunity to learn from experts, engage in active peer to peer sharing and celebrate our community’s achievements.

NHSA utilizes the latest technology to support the attendee registration, on-site experience and post-event evaluation.  NHSA’s website and conference management system are frequently updated in the 12 weeks prior to the event. It is best to review the event schedule at a glance and listing of training sessions prior to your arrival.

NHSA presents learning experiences in a number of formats – 30, 60, 90 minutes education sessions, also half and full-day intensive trainings and small affinity group meet-up to foster peer to peer learning communities. NHSA also offers event sponsors unique opportunities to showcase products for our community.  Sponsored sessions and the exhibit hall are the only locations products and services should be marketed.

At all events, NHSA will request evaluations from attendees. This is important opportunity to share general feedback, concerns about a session’s content or point out  an exceptional experience.  At any time in your attendance experience – do not hesitate to contact NHSA at or call 703-260-7575.

Continuing Education Units (CEU) are available for all sessions with clearly defined learning goals and assessment tools.  Learn more about our CEU process.

NHSA has developed a number of policies to guide our relationship with attendees. Please take a moment to review the Registration FAQs.
