MACE Technical Pre-Conference

This year the MACE Conference will be hosting a free technical pre-conference which will focus on issues and need of technical staff in the school districts.  There will be sessions available on several topics then a roundtable discussion and dinner.  There is no cost for the pre-conference but we are asking that those wanting to attend to register (for numbers at the sessions and for dinner).  This registration is separate from the main MACE conference so signing up for one does not include you in the other.  If you wish to attend both the pre and regular conference you must register twice.
