The Administration for Children and Families Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) holds a biennial national research conference that:

  • Identifies and presents current scientific research in early childhood education and family and child development (ages zero to 8 years;
  • Identifies cutting-edge research design and methodologies; and
  • Promotes dialogue and partnerships between researchers, practitioners, and policymakers.

IMPAQ is working with OPRE to plan and manage the next conference. We will perform a range of activities, including:

  • Management of the peer review of submissions (symposia and posters);
  • Support of the program committee;
  • Program development and oversight; and
  • Development and support of the website, meeting and program scheduling, and communications documents.

Our role also includes onsite support as necessary. We will perform all activities and manage costs effectively to complete the conference program agenda and deliver a high-quality conference.

For more than two decades, we have supported similar efforts for OPRE and other agencies within ACF, including Head Start and the Children’s Bureau. This includes two previous OPRE Head Start Research Conferences. On this project, our team includes senior project managers, meeting planners, technical writers, and subject matter experts.
