2019 HTA Convention

How can your organization stand out?

Regardless of how you serve homeschoolers, you have some overlap with other providers. How do you stand out? What makes your product or service different? What's something specific that you do better than anyone else? How can you communicate that to your audience?

Get answers to these questions by joining other business and nonprofit leaders at the 2019 HTA Convention. You'll attend practical workshops on refining your message and increasing your exposure. You'll have opportunities to share your experience and learn from the expertise of others. And you'll make new friends who can encourage you in your journey.

Attending the 2019 HTA Convention will give you an opportunity to connect with a variety of publishers, speakers, service providers, event organizers, and nonprofit directors representing a broad spectrum of the homeschool community. Don't miss it!



Our speakers and panels will provide practical information that you can put to use in your organization. You'll have a chance to ask questions and get answers for your specific situation. Here are the current speakers we have lined up to share with us.
