Hello OGEA Membership,
A good portion of our dues money goes toward supporting you, our members, attending CTA conferences in the area. These conferences are very insightful and allow you to meet other teachers in the field from all over the state to get new ideas and help you to improve your practice to be the best for your students!
OGEA will cover the registration cost for your conference, cost of mileage and parking, 1 night stay in a hotel at the CTA rate, and food allowance for 1 meal up to $40.
Here are some of the upcoming conferences offered by CTA. For a complete list, click the following link: http://www.cta.org/conferences
