Thank you to those who made their way to Plano on Tuesday, November 3 to join with Region 10 and 11 in "A Day of Training" at the Sockwell Center. What a great facility and what a well run event. Thank you to Connie Busby from Chapel Hill who stepped up on short notice and did a great presentation for one of the sessions. It was a great warm up for conference coming up next month. Please go to the IMCAT Website and register for this year's conference coming up December 7-9 @ Lost Pines Resort in Cedar Creek, Texas (Austin).
REMINDER: Our next Region 7 Meeting is coming up on November 17. Go HERE to register today!
Thank you to everyone for your attendance at our recent Region 7 meeting. A very special thanks to the guys from the North Texas Textbook Coordinators Association for their attendance and input. Please take time to fill out the survey on the main page to give me an idea about how many folks are going to attend the day of training on November 3 in Plano. This is a great opportunity to get some training and to network with other coordinators. Hope you can make it. We will plan on having a Region 7 meeting again in November. Put November 17 on your calendar as our next regular meeting.
I hope everyone is getting back into the swing of things and you're recovering from your Proclamation 2015 "hangover". I hope to see you all at the next Region 7 meeting. It is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 29 @ 9:00 at the Region 7, ESC. There are many things to inform you of and I trust there will be a lot of helpful conversation for old and new coordinators alike. I look forward to seeing you all there.
Overnight your IMA funds for the 2015-2017 biennium were added to EMAT. Now it's time to start ordering those materials! Good luck!!
Summer's coming to a rapid close. Hopefully all your materials have arrived and you're ready to begin a new year. Don't forget to attend our regional meeting on September 23 to get the most up-to-date information about all things IM. Also, $10 membership dues should be paid at this first meeting of the year. See you in September.
I appreciate so much your support during the last two years. It has been a pleasure to have the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful and dedicated group of people. I encourage you to throw equal support behind Donna McGuire as she takes over the reins. She will be a great asset to our organization and will do a great job of moving us forward. Thanks again for all you do and have a wonderful summer. Remember, if you need help or have questions, don't hesitate to reach out to me or others in our organization.
Come join us for our next regional meeting on Tuesday, April 29 at Region 7 ESC. We begin at 9:00. We will have a special presentation by the Learning List organization, so you'll want to be present.
Please join us for our Regional Meeting on Tuesday, February 11. It's always a great time to get new information and share things you've learned.
All I can say is WOW! Thanks to everyone who attended the meeting yesterday in Kilgore. I think a lot of good came out of our time and I appreciate all of the input from members and vendors alike. Please take time to reach out to our vendors that were there yesterday and thank them for their attendance.
