- As there are no proposed amendments this year, delegates will be voting on our Region VI Secretary - Aaron Geiman, the NAAE President - Sherisa Nailor, and the the NAAE President Elect either Mary Hoffman (Region III) or Stan Scurlock (Region V)
REGIONAL BUSINESS MEETING:
- Our Regional Business Meeting is Monday, November 30 beginning at 6:00 PM via Zoom. Even if you are not registered for NAAE Convention, you are encouraged to register and attend this session.
- Registration is available at https://uky.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYpcO-grD0pGdUFDZ05-qIA2Z0VRWVTpB_Q
- Please make sure state reports for the Regional Meeting are emailed to Aaron Geiman (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, November 27.
- If you are not registered, there is still time. The link is at https://www.naae.org/convention2020/registration.cfm
- Professional development sessions will be available for 365 after convention to registered attendees to watch at their leisure.
- Most general sessions are in the evening so they don't interfere with your school day.
- If your state has a Region VI winner, I encourage you to organize a virtual watch party to "experience" the session with them.
Let me know how I can continue to best serve you during these unique times.
