This year’s CHAP Convention offers another exciting line-up of speakers to meet your needs. There is a speaker for just about every possible topic concerning home education: special needs, topics for dad, topics for mom, preparing for higher education, ministry, burnout, getting started, getting it all done, staying the course, pre-school, and various subject areas. We even have entertainment for the whole family throughout the day in the form of Hank the Cowdog and Family Time sessions in addition to the optional Teen Track and Children’s Programs. These speakers come from all over the country, and from various backgrounds and walks of life. Some are well known and some are “diamonds in the rough,” but the one thing they all have in common is their desire to minister to homeschool parents.
