News from the Eastern 1 Region
Suzanne Libfeld, Eastern 1 Regional Director
The 46th NCSM annual conference this year is in New Orleans, April 7-9, "Jazzed Up Mathematics Leadership." Several sessions are focused on Common Core State Standards and Emerging Leaders. The strand descriptions can be found on the NCSM website. The conference is a great opportunity to enlarge your network of resources and tools to support your work. I hope you are planning to attend and will also attend the Eastern 1 Regional Caucus during the conference. It is a great opportunity to meet and network with leaders in your region.
Eastern 1 Regional Caucus - Tuesday, April 8 3:45 - 4:45 p.m.
Grand Salon Suite B
The Caucus provides an opportunity for all NCSM members' voices to be heard! I will facilitate the Eastern 1 Regional Caucus and will share information on NCSM initiatives, national issues, and future events. Come network and celebrate regional success with fellow mathematics leaders. This is your chance to ask questions. There will also be drawings for door prizes and information on an opportunity to participate in a committee meeting. We look forward to seeing you at your caucus.
