Attached is a call for proposals for next October's combined NYSATE/NYACTE - Task Force Conference at the Gideon Putnam in Saratoga Springs, NY.

As Kate DaBoll-LaVoie and I described at the Statewide Meeting on March 26th, for this coming fall's Statewide Meeting, the TF has combined with NYSATE/NYACTE to offer a somewhat different venue for its work. As such, our support of our membership for the event will reflect a different structure. HESC will pay for members' registrations for the conference ($185). We will not be covering members' travel and hotel accommodations as we do usually for the Statewide Meeting. I encourage you then to organize sharing rooms and car travel, as many of you do for the Statewide already, to keep costs down.

In an effort to manage our budget for the event, we've opened our support of the registration cost for the conference to any TF member who has attended a Statewide Meeting in the last two years, since April 11, 2008. Eligible membes have been contacted directly.

Likewise, the gathering and planning of presentations at this conference will be different than for a Statewide Meeting; hence, the request for proposals included with this email. I encourage the Task Force to submit proposals to continue to develop the work of inclusive schools and teacher preparation programs with inclusive focuses.

UPDATED: For non-Task Force Members or for Members who do not fit the requirements of having attended at least one of our Statewide conferences within the past two years, you can register for the conference by going to:
