2016 Convention Success

April 17 2016

To all Alberta home educators:

Thank you for coming to our 2016 Convention!

What a full weekend of talks, workshops, chocolate-for-moms evening, breakfast-for-dads morning, children's convention, youth activities, and lots of shopping!

We had one of our busiest conventions EVER - over 1900 attendees!

That's an increase of over 450 from last year.

Thank you for being there!

Thank you also for your suggestions on the end-of-convention surveys.

As always, we use those surveys to choose future speakers and to make improvements every year.

This year, we got almost 300 surveys back and 98.2% of you were either 'Completely Satisfied' or 'Mostly Satisfied'.

Over 98'% satisfaction rating!

Wow!

Thank you!

And a huge hug-and-pat-on-the-back to our whole convention team.

Blessings on us all as we prepare for 2017.

From the board of the Alberta Home Education Association
