Atlanta, GA (March 5-9, 2017)



In support of inclusion and in an effort to facilitate the participation of CIES members with children in our annual conference, CIES 2017 welcomes participants to bring academically-minded accompanying children to sessions and conference events.  Thanks to a decision and financial commitment on the part of the CIES Board of Directors we are also able to offer subsidized on-site childcare.

We are dedicating a 2000 sq.ft. space in the conference hotel and working with Kiddiecorp, a nationally recognized childcare provider, to offer high-quality activities and care for children from infants (6 months) to pre-teens (12 year-olds).  Conference attendees will be able to enroll their children in child care at any point 8am-6pm Sunday March 5th through Thursday March 9th.  There will be a $15 registration fee per child and a subsidized rate of $6 per hour.

Nursing Mothers Room
CIES 2017 supports the right of women to breastfeed in public spaces and across our conference meeting facility.  Additionally, we will provide a private lactation room for nursing mothers to use as they desire. The location will be provided in the final program materials.
