Term 1 News
Hopefully the start of the new year has been kind to you. We thought we would share some of the key projects we are working on this year through NAME.
Conference 2019 - BOOK NOW.
Auckland NAME are hosting at St Cuthberts College in the second holidays - July 8th-10th. Register through the NAME website. We are really looking forward to bringing you an exciting three days of speakers, teacher presentations, and a chance to connect and share ideas. If you are interested in presenting at conference there will be a space on the registration form for you to indicate this.

RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP NOW!
This year for conference we have made a special discount for paid up NAME members so now is a really good time to renew your membership! $35 for individual membership and $60 for an institutional membership - again you can do this through the website.
Not coming to conference? Become a NAME member anyway! The NAME subscription helps ensure we have a voice in the education sector around issues that are important. It will allow us to develop support for people in all regions, advocate for our members, and continue to develop resources and communications. We need your support!

We recognise at the heart of NAME are the regions and the support you can give each other through regular meetings and catch ups. We have organised a key representative from each region who we will be working with to generate events that work for the particular needs of each region. This might mean regular catch up sessions, organising moderation meetings or just have a network to touch base with.
Exemplar project and online support
We understand that face to face meetings and PD events do not suit everyone. In response to this, another significant focus for NAME this year will be developing the resources available through the website. Feedback from the NAME survey we ran last year highlighted the need for more resources such as exemplars and help with certain standards so we will be developing these through the second half of the year.
Phew! That’s a lot of exciting things happening. As always you can stay up to date through our website and the NAME facebook page, and you can also email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We love hearing from you!
Take care for the remainder of the term. Be gentle on yourselves.
