2014 Conference Co-Chairs (L-R: Laura Carey, Fred von Mechow, Marsha Guzewich)

 

 

At the end of a long career as an Environmental Educator, I can look back at memories ranging from inspiring mentors, to unlikely teachable moments, to lifelong friend-colleagues, to outstanding students, to challenging assignments to rewarding opportunities, to enchanting places. Among my fondest memories are the many NYSOEA conferences I’ve had the privilege to attend where all of the above converge.

INFORMATION FOR REGISTRANTS


1 – Please read the following carefully.

2 – PLEASE! If you have not made your Silver Bay reservations yet, do so ASAP. They are concerned they will not be able to meet everyone’s needs if we wait to make reservations. Call Silver Bay at 518 543 8833.
3 – Please bring a cloth bag or something similar that you can put your registration materials in. This will include the conference booklet, pamphlets, and a few small appreciation trinkets.
4 – Do not bring canoes or kayaks. Silver Bay has plenty for us to use.
5 – Please lug a mug and grasp your flask (bring your coffee mugs and water bottles to reuse throughout the conference).

6 – Feel free to bring items for the NYSOEA silent auction, but only items people will want, such as reference books, children’s books, teaching supplies, hand-crafted items, etc. We may reject things we feel are not appropriate.

7 – Please let me know if you are planning on attending the Thursday afternoon from 3-5 workshop on climbing at the Silver Bay indoor climbing wall. We need at least 10 people to make this go, so if you want to do it, let me know soon.

8 – If you would like to promote your organization at the conference, bring brochures to place on a shared table in the exhibit room.

9 – Conference booklets will be provided to you in your registration packet at the registration desk when you arrive at the conference. You do not need to print the booklet from the NYSOEA web site.

10 – Encourage folks you know, especially students and teachers, who would benefit from the conference to attend.

11 – We’ve had some requests for roommates at the conference in order to double and triple up for cheaper room rates. If anyone is looking for roommates, please email me so I can hook you up with others. Make sure to let me know your gender in case I can’t figure it out by your name. Also let me know the days you are planning on staying.

See you in a few weeks!
