Celebration of Afterschool



November 15, 2019

Lodge of the Four Seasons Conference Center, Lake of the Ozarks, MO

Join us November 15, 2019 to celebrate the professionals, programs, and champions that make Afterschool Work! in Missouri.  Our Celebration dinner will be part of this year’s MOSAC2 Professional Development Institute.  The recognition dinner is included in the MOSAC2 registration or may be purchased separately for additional guests or honorees only attending the banquet.

Want to recognize a program, professional, or partner?  The recognition banquet is a special time to honor afterschool professionals for attaining their educational milestones (associates, bachelors, graduate degrees) and for their years of service in the field.  Programs also receive recognition for earning accreditation and for years of service to the children, youth, and families in their communities.  Years of service recognition is in 5-year increments, or in the year of retirement.  You can also nominate a special community partner for recognition of their support to your program and afterschool.
