Dear NATS Ontario Members,
It’s that time of year again when we are looking forward to our spring meeting and professional development day on Saturday, May 4th. The poster below will give you details of the wonderful opportunities our vice-presidents of projects have arranged for us. We have our annual meeting in the morning, starting bright and early with muffins and coffee at 9:00 a.m and then at 9:30 the meeting begins. You will remember that we now have our annual meeting on the first Saturday of May every year, so I hope you have reserved the date long ago and cancelled your teaching for the day. By the way, our annual Student Auditions take place on the third Saturday of November every year, so go ahead and reserve that day right now: November 16th, 2013.
Following the meeting, as you’ll see, we have two exciting professional development opportunities with Aaron Low, speech and language pathologist and Barbara Young, musical theatre teacher and adjudicator. We are asking all members to forward the poster below to 10 friends, students, teachers, accompanists or coaches who might also enjoy and benefit from these events. The cost to non-members is just $10 for the entire day of professional training from 10:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. You can also send interested friends to visit our webpage at www.natsontario.org where all details can also be found.
We are very pleased to once again present music vendors Plangere and Music Plus over the lunch time.
Please PRINT the poster below and post it in your studios, churches, etc. Now get started and make a list of those 10 friends you can invite! One of the best things about NATS is that it’s so easy to recommend it to friends in the profession. The benefits are wonderful and never more so than when we are all together sharing our concerns and ideas and successes and learning together, as we surely will with these exciting workshops prepared for us by Elizabeth McDonald and Alison Moodie.
