Update from the MBCUE Board!



August 28, 2018


MBCUE wants to bring DigCit Summit to California! This Digital Citizenship Summit offers parents, students, educators and administrators an amazing selection of workshop topics and featured speakers to discuss how we can help shape the culture and relationship our kids have with technology. We are in the process of submitting our proposal to the Digital Citizenship Institute and would like to provide this amazing Summit to you in May of this year.

The Student Powered Film Festival is returning this year to celebrate Earth Day and Conservation! Last year’s videos were absolutely amazing and we are very excited to see what students will create this year. Stay tuned for additional details!

The MBCUE website is getting an update! Our website will soon have a page where you will be able to learn more about and contact your fellow MBCUE Board Directors. This page will include photos, a bio for each of the Directors, their Twitter handles and applicable websites. We look forward to hearing from you!

Get ready to vote! MBCUE will soon be sending out an email to all Affiliate members in order to get your opinion on what our new MBCUE logo colors should be!

MBCUE Board elections are quickly approaching! Nominations for new MBCUE Board Members will be from September 15th-30th and elections will take place on October 15th-31st.

Respectfully submitted,

Paul Dietrich, Recording Secretary
