“Living our Purpose”
What a great Fall Conference held this year at Madden’s! Over 200 members and representatives from our sold-out exhibition fair focused on Living our Purpose as we learned together. Thanks to the MASA Executive Development Committee for identifying the theme and selecting breakout sessions. Gratitude as well to the MASA staff for working through all the logistics and welcoming our participants.
Please mark your calendars for the MASA/MASE Spring Conference on March 9 & 10 at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest. The learning you experience, along with the networking opportunities, will refresh you and remind you that we all need to focus on Living our Purpose in our daily work.
The Long Goodbye for Mia is Nearing an End!
Mia’s last day at MASA will be Thursday, October 13. This Padlet is available for you to send Mia your thoughts on her extraordinary 32 year career as MASA’s Director of Professional Learning.
“Together We Make A Difference”
The seven regional meetings have concluded with over 1200 students participating in World Cafe-style conversations led by Forbes Solutions. Stay tuned for the next steps.
