5  Welcome from the US Play Coalition As your hosts for The Play Conference 2016, we are excited to welcome you to the main event.

Whether this is your first or fifth conference, we are glad you have joined us on our journey to promote the value of play for people of all ages and abilities.

This year, our theme is “Rebooting Play.” We are thrilled with the many sessions that will reframe the way we think about play through the sharing of knowledge and experience in the field. We continue to advance play with our great sponsors and partners. Collaboration is the key to our success, and we are excited that play has creatively united so many of our individual efforts.

To date, we have funded $35,000 in grants, and we look forward to increasing that total during the conference. Please join us at the closing banquet on Tuesday night to learn who receives the 2016 action and research seed grant awards.

Of course, our conference would not be possible without you. You are the heart and soul of the modern play movement. With two keynote addresses, three PLAYtalks, nine featured speakers, and over 75 educational sessions to choose from, and two “play” hours, we are confident you will gain new knowledge and build meaningful connections with your peers. We also invite you to attend as many of our open committee meetings as you can; participating in these will position you to be an even greater leader in your community or organization in the future.

Thank you again for being with us. Thanks, as well, to our sponsors, partners, volunteers, committee chairs, steering committee, and everyone who has played a role in making this event a success.

Let’s PLAY!

wishes for an informative, constructive, and enjoyable three days as you work to expand knowledge of productive play in homes, neighborhoods, and schools. In closing, I would like to leave you with this reminder:

Children are born to play. It’s value for health, development, and well-being never fades away.

He is author of an internationally acclaimed introductory psychology textbook (Psychology, Worth Publishers, now in its 7th edition), which views all of psychology from an evolutionary perspective.

He also authors a regular blog called Freedom to Learn, for Psychology Today magazine. His own play includes not only his writing and research, but also long distance bicycling, kayaking, cross country skiing, and vegetable gardening.
