The Council for Professional Recognition is pleased to announce that Badr University in Cairo (BUC) has renewed its sponsorship support for the 2019 Early Educators Leadership Conference (EELC).

EELC is an annual early childhood education conference hosted by the Council that attracts national and international professionals and leaders in the field. This year’s conference will be held Oct. 8–11 at the Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Keynote speakers include the executive director of Leading for Children, Judy Jablon; the president/CEO of United Way of Greater Atlanta, Milton J. Little, Jr.; and the CEO of the Council for Professional Recognition, Valora Washington, Ph.D., CAE.

“We are delighted to have BUC, a first-time sponsor in 2018, renew their sponsorship for this year’s 2019 EELC this fall. Their participation and support will surely engage early childhood professionals who are seeking to gain more expertise in their careers through developmentally appropriate practices and educational training,” said Dr. Washington.

BUC will be a Silver Sponsor for the 2019 EELC.

BUC, in partnership with the Council, is the first institution in all of Africa to provide the path to earning the Child Development Associate (CDA®) Credential. BUC works collaboratively with the Council to ensure all professional early childhood educators meet the developmental, emotional, and educational needs of young children. BUC is proud to be a sponsor of EELC 2019, further supporting the impact and influence of the Council in professionalizing the field of early childhood education around the world.


The Council for Professional Recognition promotes improved performance and recognition of professionals in the early childhood education of children ages zero to five years old. The Council recognizes and credentials professionals who work in all types of early care and education settings – Head Start, pre-k, infant-toddler, family child care and home visitor programs. As a nonprofit organization, the Council sets policies and procedures for assessment and credentialing and publishes industry-leading training books and workbooks, including its CDA Competency Standards and the Essentials for Working with Young Children textbook and workbook (2nd edition), all of which are available in English and Spanish.


Since its inception, Badr University in Cairo (BUC) has had a strong vision to become among the leaders of higher education in Egypt and the region, and later on in the world.
