Dear [MANAGER’S NAME],
ZERO TO THREE is taking its Annual Conference virtual and I am very interested in attending. This 5-day online event will let me learn about the latest research and promising practices in the field and participate in a wide range of networking opportunities with thousands of colleagues from around the world. The virtual conference makes it even more accessible, affordable, and convenient to attend this year.
The conference has 5 plenary and keynote presentations from the top researchers, practitioners, and policymakers in our field, 40 breakout sessions, and 8 Issue Intensives for me to choose from, and 4 add-on 2-day forums, all focused on new understanding and skill development to support and enhance our work. In addition, the conference has a vast offering of exhibitors who will showcase new resources, training, and products that support our organization’s work with families with babies and toddlers. My attendance will allow me to:
Expand My Knowledge Base – Gain an exclusive opportunity to personally interact with thousands of global thought leaders. I can also earn CEUS at no extra cost through more than 60 contact hours of professional development.
Receive Take Home Tools – Through hands-on exercises and immersive workshops, I will be bringing back invaluable lessons learned, case studies, and practical strategies from field leaders.
Grow My Leadership Skills – The conference provides a platform to develop critical thinking and key competencies in the industry.
Access Sessions Post-Conference – Content from the Annual Conference will be made available for viewing at my own pace for 30 days post-conference.
Impact studies clearly point to highly positive and real change in practice when groups experience professional development together. It creates a threshold of shared understanding that supports implementation in practice. This is truly a great benefit of a virtual conference – learning for you and your colleagues that is both affordable and accessible from wherever you are.
Additionally, I will submit a report post-conference that will include key takeaways and a set of recommended actions to help our entire staff benefit from my experience. Thank you for considering this request. I look forward to your reply.
