Where has this year gone? CEA is only 3 weeks away!
For those of you who don’t know what CEA or Career Educators of America is, it is an annual conference for educators, developed by educators. It is a training event specifically for educators in the beauty and wellness industry.
The conference delivers education on teaching methodology, motivation, inspiration, technology and more from some of the greatest educators in the industry. There are industry vendors and you’ll have the opportunity to network with educators from around the country.
I know many educators are unable to travel each year to CEA and have missed out on the opportunity of outstanding education.
The good news is… this is your year! Due to COVID-19, this year’s CEA conference has been changed from a 3-day live event to a 3-day VIRTUAL event.
Even as a virtual event, this year is going to be great! You will still get to experience all the great aspects of a live event.
Industry vendors will be there, and you will have the opportunity to speak with them or view their products in the Virtual Exhibit Hall. Milady and all our account managers will be there ready to answer any questions you have about Milady resources. Be sure to “stop” by! We’d love to see you.
Here are some things you don’t want to miss out on at virtual CEA:
Milady Lightening Talk – Saturday, July 11th – 10:00 am – 10:30 am CDT. We are going to get things started with a great lesson on Developing a Growth Mindset. It will be juicy!
Keynote Speaker Sponsored by Milady – Saturday, July 11th – 10:30 am – 11:30 am CDT. Sonya Dove, a leading industry educator, entrepreneur, trendsetter and mentor.
Milady Master Educator Class – Saturday, June 11th – 11:45 am – 1:15 am CDT. I’ll be there with this year’s Master Educator class, Blended Education: Striking the Perfect Balance. We are going to dive into how you can design, create and deliver a hybrid program to ensure your school and your students are set up for success.
N.F. Cimaglia Educator of the Year – Sunday, July 11th – 10:30 am – 11:00 CDT. Join us there to celebrate this year’s Educator of the Year winner, honoring an educator who has made significant contributions to education in the beauty and wellness industry this past year.
