"As a team, the Afterschool and Expanded Learning group at AIR presents at many conferences around the country. The BOOST Conference continues to be our favorite for a number of reasons... From the morning energizers to the keynote speakers to the poolside receptions, there is plenty of time to connect with some amazing people in the field of afterschool... the BOOST Conference manages to attract an engaging audience that is thirsty for information year after year. Add to all of that the beautiful and welcoming destination of Palm Springs, CA and you have a win-win for presenters and attendees."
