HS 148: Homeschool Convention 411 with Dawn Garrett



Today I am joined by Homeschool Solutions Community Manager and fellow convention fan Dawn Garrett to talk all about the homeschool convention. Dawn and I are both long-time attendees of Great Homeschool Conventions and are looking forward to meeting many of you there this year.
In this episode Dawn and I dish:
  1. Why go to a homeschool convention at all.
  2. Our favorite panel or talk from a convention and how to decide which speakers to see.
  3. How to avoid “overload” and work the vendor hall like a pro.
  4. The pros and cons of going with family or friends.
  5. How to stick to your budget and the one tool you should not forget to take to the convention.
  6. How going to conventions have helped us in our homeschooling and why we wouldn’t miss going each year.
If you haven’t given a convention a thought this episode might get your inspired to check on out.

    Random question from a first time conference goer… Is there a table or somewhere where one could leave gently used curriculum that might bless someone else? I’m specifically going to GHC and would love be helpful to someone (and myself) in that way.

    I am so wishing that GHC had printable schedules online! I am headed to SC this weekend and tried to planned ahead, but the schedule prints out so tiny that you can’t read it! Bummer!
