It’s finally here!  It’s Orange Conference week and we are at the Gwinnett Arena right now, setting up and getting everything ready to have a fantastic time when you arrive!  When all of you arrive, all 6500+ of you, finding your way around might get a bit crazy, so here are some helpful hints for connecting with all things First Look during conference.

The first place you will find First Look love is with the Orange Specialists at the Meet and Greet, Tuesday evening, from 7-9pm during early registration.  There will be music, food, pictures and fun so don’t miss it.  Make certain that you have RSVP’d for this event to receive the details on how to get your goodies!  Anyone can stop in, but only those who have RSVP’s will have the voucher for the surprise.  Be sure to pick up a “Who’s Who Among ReThinks Orange Specialists” card and stalk find your Orange Specialist to say hello!


If you don’t make it to Meet and Greet Tuesday evening, you can pick one up in these other locations, where you are likely to find members of the First Look team hanging out…

Social Media Hub – Stop by and see everything Orange that is going on in the social media world at the Social Hub.  Use the hashtag #OC15 and watch for your tweets, Facebook posts and Instagram pics to scroll through the displays!  There are sure to be some First Look Orange Specialists hanging around there, too, ready to take selfies with all who are up to the task!

Orange Specialist Lounge – new this year!  There will be a place where you can meet your Orange Specialist to get answer to all of your questions about implementing First Look, training volunteers and how to get every budget request approved!  (Ok, so, maybe not that budget one) They will love to hear what is happening in your preschool ministry and what’s coming up next in your world!

First Look Curriculum Booth – If you have questions about the curriculum, or if you would like to meet the editors, stop by the curriculum booth!

If you are attending You Lead Day, you will find all of your First Look team at the First Look Revised, as we give you the “First Look” into the new materials that will be included with your current First Look license beginning this fall.

If, after all of this, you still haven’t found us, just tweet that you are looking for us!  We will tweet back where we are and get you connected right away!

We will be praying that for safe travels for all of our First Look Friends this week!  You can even let us know where you are coming from and how you are getting here on our Facebook page!! See you soon!
