MEA-MFT Conference: Oct 16 & 17 2014
The Lowdown on our MEA-MFT 2014/2015
Because…everyone wants to know the plan.
We have an exciting and expansive array of sectionals for teachers to attend this fall. You should feel proud of our offerings; we’re providing great workshops for k-8 teachers, teachers in language arts and social studies; IEFA materials; high techs and hands-on alike. Missoula will be alive with creativity.
Go to the MEA-MFT website to register. The link is: https://mea-mft.eventready.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=reg.page&event_id=2039 . Save money – perhaps up to $30 - by registering now.
Once you register and pay your $30, you can use the site’s very nifty itinerary program to peruse the MAEA sectionals – and any others of interest – and make up your own itinerary. You then print this out, and you’re ready to hit the conference running.
PLEASE be sure to come to our luncheon Thursday at noon in SHS 186. And if you’re a board member or want to be active in MAEA projects, please attend the breakfast meeting Thursday morning at 7 a.m. in SHS 186 as well. I promise a delicious array of fruits and baked goods to make the breakfast meeting a wonderful start to your day.
Marvin and Jeff, our conference gurus, are planning a fantastic MAEA Silent and Live Art Aucion. Bring your items to the Lobby Thursday morning at 9 a.m. This is our MAEA fundraiser, and, maybe even more, one of our best advocacy toosl to promote the arts in education. Please help make this a fun and gorgeous event! Contribute a piece of your work, small or spontaneous, or finished, framed, and gallery-ready…and get ready for some bidding wars!
