REGISTER NOW for the October 21–22, 2016 for the Fall Region One Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, Menomonie, WI
Dear Colleagues,

Registration is now open for the Graphics Educator Symposium that will be held Friday, October 21 and Saturday, October 22 at University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie, Wisconsin.

The symposium “How to Thrive in an Era of Change” will engage teachers and industry representatives in discussions about topics critical for graphics educators:

  • trends that are shaping the industry and what they should mean to you
  • technologies that you need to understand
  • strategies to keep your curriculum relevant
  • methods to identify local or regional partners and ways to build relationships with them
  • techniques to market and promote your program for future growth

There will be opportunity to share what has worked well for you and learn what has been successful for your peers. Attendees can look forward to expanding their professional network through interaction with presenters, industry representatives, host educators and fellow graphics educators. Teachers from a variety of graphics-related disciplines (Communication Technology, Graphic Communications, Art, Graphic Design, Photography, Business, Marketing, and Yearbook advisors) are invited to participate. This variety will provide insight from a number of perspectives on every topic.

Preregistration is available at a discount, so register early to take advantage. Registration will be accepted at the door with cash or check, but please email your plan to attend as soon as possible so we can ensure adequate handouts, materials and meal planning. Review the details provided in the enclosed registration form.

We look forward to your participation in the symposium. Please contact me with any questions.
