Environmental Educators of North Carolina is excited to announce that we will be hosting our 2020 EENC Conference virtually. The virtual conference will take place on our originally planned dates of September 18 and 19.
This was not a decision we took lightly. Nearly 200 educators provided feedback through the survey we sent a couple of weeks ago. The results clearly showed that many educators were uncertain if they would be able to attend the conference in-person this year for many reasons, including personal safety, travel restrictions, and funding availability.
By pivoting to a virtual conference now, we can dedicate the time needed to plan a wonderful virtual experience for you! You can expect two half-days of virtual sessions and a keynote speaker. Thanks to your suggestions, we will also include lots of opportunities to network virtually. We are also planning to hold section events within a couple weeks of the conference so educators have more opportunities to get together for some fun activities, in-person and virtually.
Registration for the new virtual event will open mid-July, so keep an eye out for additional details. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the EENC Conference Chairs, Shannon Culpepper and Trent Stanforth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
