On October 29, 2009, Stephanie Hirsh, Executive Director of the international Learning Forward (formerly National Staff Development Council-NSDC) came to New Mexico to help us launch our state affiliate. As a fledgling organization, we have accomplished quite a bit in one year — including a summer institute attended by 55 educators and partnering with Golden Apple, New Mexico for the event. In July, we participated in the required, annual Learning Forward affiliates meeting in Seattle and learned how other state affiliates meet the expectations of the national organization. In September, we held our own Learning Forward New Mexico Board Retreat and finalized our goals and action plan to share with the membership at our annual meeting coming up October 29th.
Come to the Annual Membership Meeting and A+Rise Professional Learning Session!
4pm-7pm on Friday, October 29th
The Wells Fargo Room @ The National Hispanic Cultural Center
