Out of concern for the safety and health of providers, presenters, vendors and the families they serve, Renew Conference has been moved to Spring of 2022, in Huron with Richard Cohen. Please save the date! We hope to RENEW with you then! We'll have information soon about our Wonder Conference, scheduled for April 30–May 1, 2021 in Chamberlain.

The Explore! Conference in Sioux Falls was led by Susan Dotson, Conference Chair. Her team, for the first, and last time, used a facility that was not a hotel. That created some challenges while providing some benefits. It was fun to bring in our own food, but the lack of staff to clean up after ourselves left our leader taking out trash! The built-in projector system was nice and we so appreciate Tim Stefanich for helping each of our presenters with its use. We couldn't have done without his fantastic technical support through it all. The vendor tables had to be rented, brought to the conference, set up, and taken down and returned. All in all, we had a great time, but the extra work involved makes us truly appreciate the hotel staff who do it for us in other years. 

The marvelous decor created by Marisol Summers truly brought our animal-themed "Explore!" to life. From the Savannahs of the African plain to the Rainforest, to the Northern Woods, to the Antaractic and Ocean life, Marisol created a paradise for us all. The Silent Auction room was amazing with all the different things to bid on. We appreciate the time and effort and the giving that Marty Summers, Lynette Lohan and Family, and our Conference Supporters gave to us. Patricia Dischler was our Keynote Presenter and we had fantastic classes. Enjoy the show!
