Dear Michigan Agriscience Educators:
Please join us for the Michigan Horticulture Teachers Association Professional Development Institute (Winter PDI) being held at Comfort Inn in Southgate on January 18-20, 2018 Each year we strive to put together an interactive and dynamic agenda complete with industry professionals from the area in which the conference is being held. We are excited to have local business owners share their industry expertise with us, along with some current teachers who will lead workshop sessions focused on inquiry and techniques to better assist with preparing students for FFA career development events.
From irrigation to technology and hydroponics to power tool safety, come ready to collaborate, connect and network in one of the most supportive learning environments you will find in education today. If you have never attended this conference before, make this the year you give it a try. If you’re new to the agriscience classroom, come meet some passionate educators!
SCECHs will be offered to interested members.
Silent Auction: One tradition made possible year after year by the MHTA is the ability to provide a scholarship for a deserving individual through hosting a silent auction at the annual conference. We are asking that each attendee bring at least two donated items to contribute to the auction success. Items can be school related or miscellaneous. Regardless of the item, these funds will directly impact a student’s growth and education.
Registration and Membership: All participants who register prior to January 5th will receive a MHTA hooded sweatshirt. Membership for 2018 is included in both the ‘Full Conference’ and ‘Friday Only’ options. Please complete the Conference Registration Form online at https://goo.gl/mfPZb1 .
