I changed the chalk quotes this year.  Said goodbye to one of my favorites, Dr. Seuss and looked up these short quotes about innovation.

NYSATA & NAEA Annual Conferences

Some surprise emails from NYSATA & NAEA regarding submitted proposals for the Annual Conferences.  This was my first try to present at both of them (2 each).  One NYSATA proposal was accepted, the other placed on a wait list which has since been accepted.  Both accepted for NAEA. Only 35% are chosen for NAEA done by blind peer review because the process is highly competitive.
