MACE Information Technology Network

This year the MACE Conference will once again be hosting a free MACE Information Technology Network which will focus on issues and need of technical staff in the school districts.  We will begin with TED-type presentations** a free lunch, then EdCamp breakouts to open up discussion.  There is no cost for the MACE Information Technology Network but we are asking that those wanting to attend to register (for numbers at the sessions and for lunch).  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 MACE Information Technology Network and regular conference you must register twice.
