IMLEA Monday Minute
Labor Day Edition, September 4, 2017
Monday Welcome: Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Jennifer McCormick
Dr. McCormick will be on hand to open the Monday portion of our conference and will share some updates from the Department of Education. She will speak at 7:45 am, followed by Cathy Tooley. Registration will be open at 7 am that day.
We now have over 250 people registered for our conference! You can still register on our conference website. The session variety is outstanding.
Todd Whitaker will be our keynote speaker on Sunday, September 17 at 5 pm. Because he has to leave right after his presentation, he has agreed to be available outside the ballroom* from 4 pm on. You can come to the Sheraton, watch the end (or all) of the Colts game and mingle with fellow educators and Todd. We will have some of Todd's books available for autographing/purchase (cash or check only). Registration and exhibits will also be available from 4-5 pm. (*change from previous newsletter)
There is a garage with free parking immediately to the north of the hotel, with a skywalk on the third level of the garage that connects directly to our meeting room level.
The deadline has passed for the $129 rate, but if you contact Shirley Wright directly by September 10, you can still get a discount from published hotel rates.
