Welcome to the First Things First Virtual Summit 2020 registration.

As an alternative to our traditional in-person conference, FTF is presenting a free, virtual Summit on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 to support the early childhood community through the pandemic. The summit will use Zoom as a platform to telecast each session to attendees, so you will need access to the internet.

Registration Instructions
For this year’s Summit, you must register for each session that you want to attend in order to receive a Zoom link for that session.

Registration is easy! Click on the REGISTER link under each session title, then you will be taken to a page to register for that specific session. If you would like more information about the session before you register, please click on the MORE DETAILS link under the session title. This link will take you to the Schedule of Events page where you can find information about each session that includes the topic, speakers, downloadable information (if available) and also a session registration link.

You can register for as many sessions as you would like at the Virtual Summit, but you must register for each session. Sessions have limited capacity so please register early. Recordings will be available after the Summit for sessions that you were not able to attend.


At the conclusion of the Summit, a certificate of attendance will be uploaded to the Summit website. You can download this certificate as proof of your attendance.
