Thank you for your patience as we’ve worked to reschedule BUILD23! 

We are thrilled to welcome you back to two conference experiences:  virtual and in-person meeting (with virtual content access)!  The opportunity to network and connect with like-minded colleagues from across the country is what makes this conference special. The conference theme—Strengthening Systems, Improving Quality, Advancing Equity—speaks to the challenging work we are doing to build and sustain high-quality, comprehensive, early childhood systems that are equitable and meet the needs of all young children and their families.

The virtual conference gives you access to over 45 sessions and two plenaries created exclusively for the virtual event. Even if you are not able on the dates of the virtual conference, you will still have access to all the content! Join us November 13 – 14, 2023 online!

At the in-person conference, over three days, you will have the opportunity to participate in over 150 sessions exploring (1) access to high-quality programs and services, (2) leadership development and capacity-building, and (3) sustainability and improvement in programs and systems. You will learn with colleagues, hear from experts, and discuss questions and ideas about topics including continuous quality improvement, prenatal-to-age-three, data and evaluation, workforce development, finance and investments, and equitable systems-building. At BUILD23, we hope you find solutions to challenging problems, fresh ideas that move work forward, and inspiration that reignites your passion.

Join us November 29 – December 1, 2023 in Los Angeles!
