What We Can Expect with the Biden Administration, Mike Smith
Now that that our new president has been sworn in, what can we expect as homeschoolers? Mike will share what we need to be watchful for and how we can continue to preserve the freedoms we have to direct the education and upbringing of our children.

Legislative Issues in Post-Election California, Nathan Pierce
In light of the political changes at the federal level and the California Legislature ramping up with a plateful of education bills at the ready, Nathan will discuss some issues to be prepared for this year and some strategies for protecting our homeschooling freedoms in California in the short and long term.

Homeschooling in the Time of COVID: lessons learned, risks, opportunities, and cause for hope, Jim Mason
Homeschooling the last 11 months (and counting) has looked drastically different than it ever has. Jim will discuss what we can take away from these unprecedented times. What have we learned? How is homeschooling still vulnerable? How can we continue to seize this moment when homeschooling is in the national spotlight? How can we have hope, even in the midst of frustration and discouragement?


Rescue Mission: Three Keys to Embracing and Equipping New Homeschool Parents, Lisa Dunne
Homeschoolers have been praying for this moment for years: that parents across America would awaken to the dangers of the public school system and decide to leap into the adventure of homeschooling their children. Now that that moment has arrived, how will we steward the homeschool harvest that is flooding our co-ops, our communities, our conferences? Join Dr. Lisa Dunne as she shares her experience on the rescue mission, launching four homeschool campuses and a university in the span of four months.

Life Beyond Zoom, Sherri Payne
2020 may have forced co-ops to become virtual, but is Zoom really the best answer? In this workshop, we will focus on how to hold classes online, review the technology available and how to choose for your situation, and discuss how to adapt as leaders, manage students, and administrate effectively in the virtual world.

Addressing Child Abuse Concerns, Mary Schofield
No leader wants to deal with child abuse. Whether it involves allegations, investigations, or confirmed abuse, it’s a difficult situation. What do leaders need to know? What are your responsibilities as a leader, both ethically and legally? How can leaders best assist families dealing with this issue? What resources are available? We’ll talk about these questions and more.

Leaders for Tomorrow, Noah Wolfe & Pastor Tim Griffin, EdD.
Leadership is the catalyst for bold new ideas and forward-thinking initiatives. Leaders inspire and motivate others, serve as group advocates and push individuals toward excellence. Learn how Grand Canyon University has incorporated and utilized student leaders to grow their student impact within their university and into the world as graduates.
