Every year the NJEA has their annual convention in November in Atlantic City, New Jersey.This year, we will be having Jennifer Horling and Aimee Schneider present on behalf of NJAKE on Thursday, November 6, 2014.
Many educators often do not attend because of the distance.Therefore, I am trying to gather information on who would be interested in going to the convention via chartered coach bus.I was thinking about leaving around 6:15 am with arriving in Atlantic City at 8:15 am and leave Atlantic City at 4:30 pm.We would arrive back at the pick up location (TBA) around 6:30pm. This would give us a whole day of attending workshops, visiting exhibits, having lunch, and networking with colleagues/peers.
In order to make this happen, I would need to know who is interested.The coach bus holds 54 people, is air-conditioned, has a DVD player and bathroom.The cost for transportation could be $25.00-$30.00 for members and $50.00-$60.00 for non-members.Please let me know who is interested in such an adventure.The bus company that I would be using advised me to reserve a bus as soon as possible.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts.Please e-mail me by Monday, September 15, 2014 if this is something you would be interested in. No plans have been made yet. The cost is based on filling the entire bus. All information in this e-mail is subject to change. I am just gathering information at this point.
