2018 ITEM Fall Conference – call for proposals and registration are open!

Our Friday morning keynote speaker this year will be Charlie Miller, the Founder and Chief Designer of
Flipgrid. If you aren’t already using this tool with your students, Flipgrid is a social learning platform “where your students go to share ideas and learn together.”

The Call for Proposals is open!
The Call for Proposals for sessions is open! Share your knowledge with your colleagues, impress your administrators, and add a notch on your professional
development plan! Our friendly and supportive conference is a great place to present whether it’s your first time or your hundredth – plus, the lead presenter gets a one-year membership ($60 value!) or a $50 discount on registration.

Exhibitors, authors, bookstore…
The conference is a great chance to visit one-on-one with vendors to find out about the latest products available. Our vendor members are a huge
support for the organization, so be sure to stop by and return the favor. Authors, authors, everywhere! Each year ITEM features a number of local authors who are available to sign books and share about their work. In addition to the luncheon author panel this year there will also be a breakout session or two featuring the authors. Just learned about a new local author and you simply have a copy of their book? Visit the ITEM Bookstore!

All in a BEAUTIFUL setting!
The lovely Arrowwood Resort in Alexandria, MN sits on the shore of Lake Darling and features a restaurant, spa, and water park – so bring the whole family for one last getaway weekend of the season! ITEM has reserved a block of rooms for the conference for just $109 per night. You can make your reservation online here. Note: Bring the whole family! For $139 a night you can get four passes to the water park (Friday, Saturday or Sunday only.) Contact the resort for this deal, but be sure to mention that you’re with ITEM.
