Summer Conference

July 30 – August 1
Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center, East Lansing

In her welcome letter in the conference announcement, MEA President, Paula Herbart, starts with:

When I speak with MEA members and leaders attending our conferences, one common refrain I hear matches the title of an infectious Pointer Sisters song from the 1980s – “I’m so excited!”

They’re rejuvenated and ready to get back at it, they say at the conference wrap: “I’m so excited to share this information/try this new idea/implement this innovative plan!”

 I’m always happy for them—and now you.

 Welcome to the Summer Conference: The MEA for Today and Tomorrow. Whether you are a first-time attendee or a returning veteran, there will be much here to replenish your soul and retool your local.

Career & Technical Programs Making A Difference

Despite the pandemic, career and technical education programs are still an important option for students – and a critical training pathway for our economy. That’s why Gov.
