Dear Directors,

The date of the GPA Conference at JI is fast approaching and we need some more participants to make the conference a success!

We’ve decided to extend the early registration date through October 17.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to help your staff earn 6 Bright from the Start approved hours!  All you need to do is send us a quick email ( with the number you plan to send and follow that up with your registration postmarked by October 17.

As you look over the attached brochure, you will note that we have some great sessions! Your staff will find ideas for group time, math, literacy, GELD standards and music.  We have  sessions at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels.  We are offering two sessions particularly for directors as a chance not only to learn but to network with each other.

As a special incentive, we will offer you one BOGO for any participant that registers by October 17.  That means if you register 1 paid participant, you get 1 conference registration free!  Our BOGO offer is available for up to 5 per school (not including lunch) from October 7 - 17.

As you can tell, the Georgia Preschool Board is serious about making this conference a success!  We hope to see you there!
