GERMINATE Virtual Conferences

Registration opens

10/10! I have attended 2 GERMINATE conferences now and they are awesome. It’s amazing because I can channel my inspiration into action IMMEDIATELY. Seriously – I pause so many sessions to get right to work and set myself up for success right away. It eliminates my classic “PD notebook” where I take notes and then probably lose it before anything happens. LOVE IT

If there were a way for you to get a CONVENIENT, AFFORDABLE, and IMPACTFUL Professional Development this winter break, that is something you would be interested in isn’t it?

GERMINATE Virtual Conference is coming back for its FOURTH installment this January.

You have TWO ways to register in GERMINATE this year! GERMINATE Virtual Conference: Winter Edition is January 1-5, 2021.

Option 1: ONLINE-The simplest way to register is to go to this link and register! That’s it!

Option 2: INVOICE -Will your school pay your way? GREAT! Click this link to get an invoice sent right to your email. Give that to your bookkeeper and when you are ready they can pay in three ways 1. With their school card ONLINE (easiest way, with no wait) 2. Send a CHECK to the address on the invoice (must wait until payment it received to be manually registered) 3. Set up a PURCHASE ORDER (must wait until payment it received to be manually registered).

Germinate gives you the freedom to complete professional development on your own time, on your comfy couch, in your PJs, and best thing yet, everything is geared towards YOUR content area! Where else can you get all that!?

Germinate was hands-down one of the most beneficial professional development experiences I have had so far. .. I recommend anyone to attend Germinate and take advantage of all of the connections, resources and information available! It’s a great investment into your future, and most importantly, into your student’s future.
