The Buell Early Childhood Leadership Program has released it's 2017 annual report. Please read here!

We are so excited to see and to talk “Network” and “Leadership” with you next week at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center!  Here are a few things to help you prepare for the Buell Alumni Retreat: The Art of from…”Me” to “We”.

  • 2017 BECLN Retreat Agenda (and attached below)
  • We will have a Message Board available for Alumni to post messages throughout the Retreat.
  • If you feel like starting your day with a little movement, meet in the lobby at 6:00 am Friday and Saturday morning for a brisk walk around the beautiful grounds of the Inverness.
  • Have you come across any interesting resources or read any good books this past year?  Please bring community, region and state resources/titles to share with the Network.
  • For those of you who requested a room reservation--we want to thank you again for your gracious willingness to move off-site for the BECLN Retreat.  We are so excited that we have so many Alumni traveling in for the Retreat this year and thankful that we are able to provide lodging at no cost (with the exception of incidentals) to the participants.  For your room information, please look for the room list that was emailed to you recently. We ask that you double check your arrival and departure dates to ensure they are correct.  If you need to make any changes, run into problems or have any difficulties during the check in process, please contact Wendy at This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • If you have not already, we encourage you to create or update your profile on our private Buell Leaders networking page by going to "Buell Leaders Login" prior to arriving. More behind the scenes information and collaboration will be happening using this new tool and you will not want to miss out! 

Please let us know if you have any questions.  Otherwise, get ready… it’s going to be fun!!
