How to Survive Your First CHEA Convention

If this is your first CHEA Convention

Before the Convention
1. Wear very comfortable clothing and shoes.
            a.    Bring a sweater. Some rooms are cool: some are warm.
            b.    You will be walking a lot. Wear low-heeled shoes.
2. Give yourself half an hour longer to get to the Convention Center than you think you need.

3. Give yourself another half an hour to get from the parking area to the Convention Center.

4. Develop a strategy for your weekend.
            a.    Which workshops do you want to attend?
            b.    Which exhibits are a “must see"?

At the Convention
1. Check your Program to fine tune your weekend strategy.

2. Visit the CHEA Store:
        a.     Become a CHEA Member.
        b.     Purchase An Introduction to Home Education -- this is the most important getting started book you can have.

3. Visit the Support Network Booth and request a list of homeschool groups in your area.

4. Visit the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) booth in the Exhibit Hall to become an HSLDA member.

The CHEA staff and board members look forward to seeing you at the Convention. We pray God blesses, strengthens, and encourages you through this event.
