From your NCATA Board of Directors,
We are excited to see you for our 2022 Winter Conference on February 4-5th at Bandys High School. We have created a conference for you to both enjoy time with your colleagues and “take time for yourself” by growing professionally. This year’s conference will be an in-person event. Some workshop sessions will be available for online viewing. The fullest experience for this conference will be through in-person attendance.
Winter Conference is a great time for ANY agriculture teacher, NCATA Member or not, to cultivate their career and spend time with colleagues. Also, attendance to this conference can count as three points on your “12 Month Employment Evaluation.”
The DEADLINE to REGISTER is Monday, January 31st at NOON. This is a firm deadline due to headcounts for catering.
You may use this email and your registration confirmation (sent via email after you register) for documentation needed by your school system. Please use your registration confirmation as your invoice and submit payment between January 6th to February 5th to:
Matt Owen – Treasurer / Dues Remitter
8050 NC Hwy 801
Mt. Ulla, NC 28125
*You may submit payment on the day of the conference at Bandys High School.
