    Hi Dr. Williams...

    I'm currently the director of curriculum and other things at the Chiang Mai International School in Chiang Mai Thailand. We have a pretty large regional group of international school called the East Asia Regional Council of School (EARCOS) they hold a couple of large scale conferences every year and provide schools with grant money for professional development opportunities.

    I've been a member of NCSS for quite awhile and have benefited greatly from their publications and journals. In fact, I presented at NCSS in Seattle in 2012 (wow, that was awhile ago)...

    Anyway...quick question:

    I could have sworn that NCSS had an international conference at one point? I'm I making that up? Do they and I can't find the information? I ask because an international NCSS Conference could be quite popular in this region and would be highly attended. Plus, we'd love to host...

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Chris
