This is the final reminder about the 2018 MASA/MASE Spring Conference coming up next week, March 8-9, 2018 at the Minneapolis Marriott NW!
Thursday we will feature several Edcamp and breakout sessions. Friday's general session speakers are former-MLB pitcher Jim Morris presenting "Dream Makers" and Nick Buettner presenting "Thrive! Habits For a Healthier, Happier Life."
I want to invite our female members to sign-up for At Ruth's Table on Wednesday, March 7 at the Minneapolis Marriott NW - the day before the main conference.
- This is an opportunity for education leaders who are women to gather for learning, networking and idea sharing. Each practicing education leader is encouraged to bring a guest who is a woman considering a career in education leadership. This is a ticketed event; please register on the conference registration form.
Everyone is invited to join us for the Riley Reception on the evening of Thursday, March 8 from 4:30–6 pm. The Riley Reception is in honor of our MASA retirees to gather for a "homecoming."
Registration for the spring conference including At Ruth's Table and the Riley Reception can be found online at: https://www.regonline.com/2018MASAMASE

The MASA Foundation raises funds each year to support the leadership development of education administrators through resources such as the MASA Professional Assistance Team, the MASA Mentor-Mentee Program and member scholarships for professional development activities.

Booth Sleuth Conference App Game
Use your conference app to access the Booth Sleuth Game. On Thursday, participants who visit our exhibiting partners can find the answers to questions that exhibitors post in the game section of the app. Each of our exhibitors has been invited to post one question and conference participants find the answers by visiting their booth. For each question selected, the company name and booth number of the exhibitor asking the question will show up on the app — visit the booth and find the answer. There is only one chance per participant per question to answer correctly, so getting the correct answer straight from the source is important. Our leader board will track the competition, and at 3 pm the game will close. Winners will be announced at 3:15 on Thursday! (In case of a tie, we will draw among the winning players.) The winner’s district will receive an Amazon Echo Show!
