5 Amazing Benefits of Membership
Here are just a few reasons why thousands of early childhood professionals have chosen ZERO TO THREE for their professional development.
We started membership three years ago to give early childhood professionals access to the latest research, cutting-edge professional development, and a community of early childhood professionals. The ZERO TO THREE Membership experience is full of benefits designed to elevate the professional competencies of the early childhood workforce. Here are the top 5 member benefits you’ll get by joining ZERO TO THREE.
1. Annual Conference Discount
Each year, more than 3,500 early childhood professionals come to the ZERO TO THREE Annual Conference, and our members can reserve their spot with an exclusive discounted rate. This year, thousands of professionals will join us to Dive In in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. With more than 85 learning sessions to choose from, our conference attendees leave with specialized skills and resources they can immediately put into practice back home.
2. Access to Member Connect
Member Connect is more than just a social platform for our members. It’s a forum for early childhood professionals to ask questions, seek help, and to learn from one another. Our multi-disciplinary community connects early childcare providers with specialized experts in multiple fields.
3. A ZERO TO THREE Journal Subscription
Founded in 1980, the ZERO TO THREE Journal is a bi-monthly publication sharing important research, practice, and professional development. Not only do members receive a complimentary one-year subscription, but they also have access to the full digital archive of the journal. That’s more than 48 issues of timeless insights, best practices, and research, all ready to read on your mobile device or downloaded and printed. Curious about the content inside? Take a look at a sample issue from May of 2016: Chronic Stress and Complex Trauma.
4. Free Virtual Events
We’ve hosted dozens of live Virtual Events for our members, and you can count on many more over the next year. Our Virtual Event Calendar is updated regularly as new events are scheduled. Members get exclusive free access to all Virtual Events, and they can access recordings of previously held events in our Archives. Learn from subject matter experts from across the infant and early childhood field in the comfort of your home or office.
