META President's Message

Greetings from META,

We are very excited about the upcoming 2017-18 School year; META is working on many important, relevant Educational Technology topics and issues.

We continue to work through our Cyber Security Committee on the Montana Information Security Project, we are also continuing our work on our ERATE Consulting and outreach project with our partnership with NCCE. Of course support for Educational Technology through Advocacy is still a top priority for META as well. We are also planning and working on our 2018 METAteched Conference, every year our Conference adds more timely and relevant Educational Technology topics to our breakout sessions. The META Board retreat is coming up in September, this is a meeting of Board members from across the State that come together and define and refine META`s goals and strategic plans for the coming year.

Finally I want to say what an honor it is to serve as META`s President, I am so very proud of what we have accomplished in the short time we have been in existence and I am so much looking forward to the challenges that lay before us all in Education.
