We invite you to join our new, energized leadership team. We are making our region the most dynamic, productive and helpful it has ever been. Art educators in all learning environments, public, charter and private schools, museums, and community programs are welcomed. Media arts and STEAM-focused educators are welcomed as well.    

Volunteer Help Wanted: Most important, we need a Treasurer and a Secretary. We also need committee chairs, writers, a social networking coordinator...people who want to do more in their professional development, who like to get involved, who like to collaborate, who like to be up-to-date on what's going on at the state level, and people who like to roll up their sleeves. 

Please contact us if you're interested:

Portfolio Project: We are working on rolling out the Portfolio Project for our region by next year but we need to train adjudicators and get the word out so teachers can begin to plan who of their students may want to submit and assure they have enough work.  Keep an eye out here and for emails from us about the training session. We encourage interested members to attend adjudication events to observe this year if possible. Most in the closest vicinity are coming up at the end of April. 

In the meantime, Region 9 is having their portfolio adjudications on April 21 and 22 in Long Island and need adjudicators. If you have adjudicated before, please contact Jane Berzner at: Contact her even if you haven't but have interest in helping.
