Aloha OCEANIA and Friends (feel free to distribute to marine educators in Hawaii not on our OCEANIA list),
Kanesa will be attending the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) Annual Board of Directors meeting as the OCEANIA Chapter representative. Frannie and Kanesa will both be putting together a table for the NMEA Share-a-Thon at the National Teachers Association Meeting this March in San Francisco.
1. If you have items you would like me to discuss with the NMEA Board, please contact me by email, phone, or in person.
2. We are happy to share your outreach materials at the Share-a-Thon. If any of you will be attending the conference, please also join in at the Share-a-Thon! This is where regional chapters of the NMEA provide opportunities for networking, hands-on activities, take-home resources, and an opportunity to learn about marine and aquatic programs for teachers and students.
What: NMEA Session: A Whale of a Tale Share-a-Thon
When: Thursday, March 10, 9:30–10:30 AM
Where: Marriott San Francisco Marquis, Yerba Buena Salon 9
After the Share-a-Thon there will be a series of marine-related presentations throughout the day in the same room.
If you have things you'd like me to distribute, email me and we can discuss if I should get them from you or have them shipped to California ahead of time.
