  • 1.  Austin Conference Involvement Opportunities

    Posted 10-11-2019 01:22:00 PM
    Our Annual conference is less than 6 weeks away and it is time to start planning our time there. 
    There are several opportunities for committee involvement in the Conference.
    1.  We could use volunteers to staff the Friends Community table during the Community showcase. Please respond to this post.

    2.  Joy Lindsey has asked members of the Friends Community to assist NCSS in staffing the NCSS booth in the Exhibit Hall during this year's annual conference in Austin.  Please respond directly to Joy  at jlindsey@ncss.org

    3.  Friends is leading in the development of a memory book for our 100th anniversary.  There will be a Centennial Memory book committee meeting on Thursday evening in lieu of our regular morning committee meeting.

    4.  The Friends Community is presenting a workshop on Mentoring opportunities for new Social Studies teachers.  If you would like to become a virtual mentor to a new NCSS member educator, please also respond to this post.

    Where can I get details about #3 & #4 above? I am interested in both (depending on when they are scheduled during the conference). Thanks in advance! ​​

    I would be a mentor if you still need volunteers. I did volunteer to man the NCSS booth, butcannot make any of the other events, unfortunately.
