Conference 2021Update! Save the date...Saturday April 24, 2021!!
Well here we are folks, Halloween and Remembrance Day are behind us, and now we’re approaching Christmas holidays. Our SOLD OUT conference with Jody Carrington has been postponed and now must happen virtually. Like the rest of the world, COVID-19 and other factors beyond our control have turned us upside down. As would be expected, we’ve witnessed the historic sacrifice made by teachers and schools everywhere in Alberta as we’ve all stepped up to make education work for our students during these trying times.
As mentioned, Conference 2021 with Jody Carrington will be held virtually. We have been forced to go this route for the safety of our delegates, and with that said, we promise to create a powerful learning experience. Our committee met recently and we’ve moved our conference online.
As for the delegates who have chosen to remain registered for Conference 2020, we will have the following choices with regards to their registration.
-Push their registration to Conference 2022 to be held in Banff (April 2022).By pushing their registration, delegates will receive a free invitation to the virtual conference this coming Saturday, April 24, 2021.
- Request a full refund from Conference 2020.Please note that we are expecting to charge about $75 for the virtual conference.
We will be outlining a process for delegates to make this choice by the end of November, and all registered delegates will be made aware of this choice through email.
The Banff Park Lodge continues to be our favourite location for our annual Middle Years Conference, and we look forward to a day when we can again use this great hotel for our conference. The Banff Park Lodge is an excellent fit for our conference, and the staff there treat our specialist council and our delegates well. Our survey results indicate that teachers enjoy the conference at this location, and we’re excited to be back there for our annual conference in April 2022.
On behalf of the conference committee, we hope that you and your family are doing well and staying safe. Thank you for your interest in the middle years, and we look forward to learning with you virtually or in person sometime very soon!
