Today’s post was supposed be all about the awesome CHEA symposium our church was hosting this past weekend. Everyone in the homeschool group was excited to host this event and to welcome people who might be new to homeschooling.
Unfortunately, the event was cancelled due to lack of sign-ups. I wonder, does this happen often? This was the first time we have attempted to host, so I have no prior experience to go by.
I wonder if the event was scheduled for a difficult day or time of year, for that matter. Is it because most families who were planning to homeschool have already begun their journey and don’t need the symposium at this time? Hmmm….
No matter, it is all for the best. We will be hosting our own convention at the beginning of next year, February 1st. That should prove to be an exciting event as we will be doing more than just hosting, if the event doesn’t get cancelled as well. (More on this in the future; I am very excited to see how this turns out.)
I would appreciate some feedback though… How many homeschooling conventions do you attend a year? What are you looking for when attending and what would prompt you to attend more than one symposium/conference?
