2018 SAQA Oregon Regional Conference
We need YOU to help us make the 2018 Oregon Regional Conference what YOU want it to be! The regional conference is a way for Oregon SAQA members to network, learn, exhibit some work, and be inspired. This is your chance to influence what happens at that event! We need at least one representative from each POD on the steering committee to reflect the interests of SAQA members across the state. The steering committee will decide the theme of the conference, select a keynote speaker, and coordinate a variety of activities and demonstrations for everyone attending the conference in Eugene in October 2018. We’ll use the ZOOM platform to hold virtual meetings so you won’t have to travel before the actual conference date. If you’re interested, please contact one of the co-chairs, Daisy Schrock, schrock32@gmail.com, or Katie Walwyn, ktwalwin@comcast.net, by May 10th.
