Dear Fellow Montessori Administrators,
Welcome back to another school year! I hope it is your happiest and most productive yet.
Before your schedule gets too full, please take a moment for something that will nourish your own development: Join or renew your membership in the New Jersey Montessori Association Corporation (NJMAC), an organization comprised of and devoted to Montessori school leaders like you.
Leading a school can be a lonely job. Creating a wider community as a resource for support and to promote the exchange of ideas and strategies for sustaining ourselves and our schools is one of the reasons NJMAC was created. Another is to organize the annual NJMAC Conference on the first Friday in March each year. This coming year, the Conference will be held at the Pines Manor in Edison, NJ on Friday, March 2, 2018.
The NJMAC Conference is the focal point of NJMAC volunteer activity each year and is designed to provide accessible professional development for all members of the Montessori community. It is our greatest success story: Conference attendance in recent years has regularly topped out at over 500 educators, has included an increasing number of schools from neighboring states, and has risen in quality to rival the national AMS conference at a fraction of the cost. Please note that NJMAC member schools who join NJMAC before December 1, 2017, get a discounted conference registration rate. It's one way that school membership in NJMAC pays for itself!
Please join us. Preparations for an exciting 2018 NJMAC Conference are already underway. It will be a great year!
All the best and I hope to see you at our first meeting in October!
NJMAC President 2016-2018
