Jan 2015

Happy New Year everyone.  OBEA hopes that 2015 will be a good year for all of our business educators across the province.
Just a couple of quick notes to keep in mind.
Teacher Nominations for awards are needed by January 31, 2015.

We are looking for nominations for:
Robert Hillmer Award
Accounting Teacher of the Year Award
Award of Merit
Innovative Teacher of the Year Award
Life Membership Award

 If you know of a worthy candidate, please take the time to nominate them.  Check the Teacher Awards section on the website for criteria for each award. https://www.obea.ca/teacher_awards.htm

Our PD committee is finalizing workshops and keynote speakers for our spring conference.  Once we have posted the brochure on our website and mailed it out to members sometime in early February, registration for our 2015 Spring Conference will open - so stay tuned.  The conference will take place at the Airport Holiday Inn Thursday, April 23 and Friday, April 24th, 2015. - Mark your calendars.

I have spent some time looking over tweets that have been posted through our Twitter account and must say there is valuable content that can be used in the various business classes we offer across the province. How cool would it be if we got even more business educators tweeting and building resources that could be used.  If you have a great lesson that can be linked in a Twitter feed or you are using a new web tool, or find an article that can be linked - PLEASE SHARE. Don't forget to put a hashtag e.g. #BTT101 or BOH4M.  and link it to OBEA - @OnBusEducators.  I am sure we could build up quite a bank of resources.  Social media is about spreading the word - so if you are not on Twitter start using it, and follow OBEA.
