The Community Forum

“The Time is Now”

Join the brightest minds and boldest voices as we talk Northeast Ohio’s Child Care Industry.

Save the date! The 2024 Billie Osborne-Fears community forum will be held on Thursday, September 12th, at the Music Box Supper Club from 9 to 11 a.m. 

The Community Forum is a gathering of thought leaders, educators, policymakers, and business partners, all united by a common goal: to highlight the critical importance of early childhood education in building a robust workforce and a thriving economy. 

This year, Starting Point will present “The Inaugural Founder’s Award” to the individual who truly embodied Billie Osborne-Fears’ mission.
