In the Registration Book you will find all the information you need–session descriptions, speaker bios, schedule and registration information. Fair warning, it won’t be easy to choose from the great line-up that is waiting for you!
We’re looking for volunteers to be a part of the Conference Volunteer Team. VaHomeschoolers is an all-volunteer organization and many hands are needed to make the conference a success. The volunteer staff was amazing last year, so let’s do it again in 2012! Adult and teen volunteers are welcome–click below to find out more.
