Our 49th Annual Conference Has Been Postponed Until Further Notice

In response to the emergence in BC of COVID-19, ECEBC has made the difficult decision to postpone our 49th Annual Conference - Discover our Work, Discover the Possibilities...Standing Strong Together, April 30 - May 2, 2020.

Details will follow how ECEBC will manage refunds. If you have made travel arrangements or hotel bookings please contact them directly. Your patience is appreciated as we sort out necessary processes.

This was a tough decision to make , ECEBC’s Annual Conference is an incredibly important gathering of Early Childhood Educators and it’s one of our favorite ways to celebrate all of you from around the province, however we need to prioritize health and safety of delegates. We will continue to communicate next steps. Presentors, vendors and sponsors will be contacted this weekend.
