Homeschool Convention Strategies Tips


Springtime is a favorite time of year for nearly all homeschooling parents.  Homeschool conventions are  formulating and the parents are giddy.  What is so exciting?  Well, let me tell you.

A Homeschool Conference, Convention, Expo, and Curriculum Fair are essentially synonymous.  Each has different hosts and comes in different sizes, lengths, and locations.  Typically, the state homeschool association puts on an annual event.  Even though homeschool support groups, online organizations, and others can do the same.  They can either have speakers and an exhibit hall or function solely as a location for parents to purchase their supplies for the upcoming school year.  Most of these events occur in the spring and may last anywhere from one to two days.  You will find these events held in locations varying in size from a church to a major convention center.  They even take place online.


For the sake of consistency, I will refer to these events as a state sponsored “convention.”


A convention is more than just a time to gather with other like-minded individuals.  It is a time for renewal of our commitment to homeschooling.  One prevailing aspect of the conventions is the Christian atmosphere.  This certainly does not mean those with differing views are not welcome.  The conventions are primarily for new and seasoned homeschooling parents desiring to gain wisdom and encouragement, as well as seeking the opportunity to view products first-hand before making purchases.

Even though a homeschool convention is a well-anticipated event, attending one can be overwhelming if you are not prepared.  The upcoming tips will give you strategies on how to survive a convention.  Visit regularly as I share with you tips on how to make your next homeschool convention more enjoyable from start to finish.
