LASE Update 1/11/2016
IMPORTANT INFO - CANCELLATION OF REGULAR FEBRUARY MEETING!
The CASE Hybrid is a wonderful opportunity to check into what is going on at a national level and have some discussions about the impact on us locally. SO... in order to give everyone the opportunity to attend the CASE Hybrid we will be canceling our regular February 5th LASE meeting. I would encourage each of you to come to the Hybrid conference for one day or if possible both days. Details and a registration link is included a bit further down in this newsletter. You will need to RSVP as soon as possible since meals and registration will be provided courtesy of Rethink and SpedTrack! Collaboration with area directors and free food - what's not to love!
Because of this change we will also put our next Book Study on hold until next Fall!
JANUARY MEETING MINUTES ARE POSTED!
REGISTER ASAP FOR CASE HYBRID CONFERENCE
Please use the following link to register ASAP so they can plan accordingly for lunches. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CASEWinterHybrid
We will remote into the conference from SPS's new office building located at 1610 East Sunshine on the south side of the road. It is just east of Grove Spa and Oxford Health Care between Oxford and a Phillips 66. It is across the street from Hogan Land and Title. The building is tan, two story and easy to miss as there is not a sign up at this time – hence the landmarks provided!
Here is a link to the conference agenda indicating topics and speakers for both days!
We hope to see you for the CASE Winter Hybrid! Contact Amy Phipps for any futher info - email@example.com
