Updated NMLSTA Bylaws Notification

Article VIII of our current (2021) Bylaws states “These Bylaws may be amended by a two-thirds vote of the Board of Directors. The Membership shall be informed of any proposed changes at least four weeks prior to a vote to amend the Bylaws.”

A side-by-side version of the updated, and 2021, Bylaws can be found here:

NSTA National Conference: Denver 24

NMLSTA will be organizing a Share-a-Thon to be held during the NSTA National Conference in Denver, March 20-23 NMLSTA. The date and time yet to be determined by NSTA.

If you are looking for an informal opportunity to share your great ideas with other middle level science educators, this is the perfect opportunity!

Our Share-a-Thon will be set up in a flea market style format where guests will circulate the room to meet with individual presenters who showcase their innovative and exciting ideas. You do not have to make a formal presentation. Simply prepare a short presentation to deliver to guests as they make their way around the room.

I will send you more information about the day and time, as well as how to register for your presentation as soon as I get the information from NSTA. All Share-a-Thon presenters will register through a link provided by NSTA

If you are interested in participating, and receiving more information about the Meet Me in the Middle Share-a-Thon, please fill out the form found HERE
