Here’s the scoop for the week...

Significant changes to the August MDE Back-to-School Conference!

I am pleased to report that MDE Commissioner Heather Mueller responded positively to MASA’s suggestion to change the conference to one that is conducted virtually and within two hours. Annual surveys of our members indicated displeasure with the timing of the conference and many noted that August is team planning time for the upcoming school year. We hope that eliminating travel time and hours spent in conferences will be beneficial to you.

Please mark your calendars for 8-10 am on Wednesday, August 4 for the MDE Back-to-School Conference themed by Commissioner Mueller as “Reconnecting!”

Have you had a chance to renew your MASA membership for 2021-2022?

This is such a busy time of year that you might have missed the message about renewing your membership. Here is a link in case you need to check this off your to-do list!

Please note the dues have remained the same and that we are now asking for demographic information. It is difficult to know if we are making progress in diversifying our membership without our members sharing their demographic information. In addition, we are frequently asked by individuals doing research, the media, and other organizations to make this information available. The MASA Board of Directors supports this collection of data and we appreciate your consideration of sharing this information and fully understand if you opt-out.
