Fall Conference


Fall classes have started and most of us are getting used to our schedules for another semester!

It’s time now to think about the annual IMATYC conference. 

This year you are invited to the Ottumwa, IA campus of Indian Hills Community College on October 12.  We’ll open registration at 8:30 a.m. and serve breakfast treats as we gather until the opening session at 9:00.

The conference will feature the following:

1.  Representatives of the Iowa regents’ universities will update us on their expanded use of ALEKS as a placement tool.  Some of our colleagues met with them last April and will share a report.

2.  Two tracks of sessions will be offered – one centering around technology and the other concerning retention efforts.

3.  Several vendors will offer exhibits.

4.  The Business meeting will direct us to look at the IMATYC Constitution and to elect officers for 2014 and delegates to the 2012 AMATYC conference in November.

A registration form is attached to this email.  Once again, the registration fee is very modest at $25 – a good buy, indeed!  Please preregister yourself and pass another copy of the form along to a colleague. 

We look forward to hosting you on Oct 12!

Diane Mason, 2012 President IMATYC

Tim Wright, 2012 Secretary IMATYC
