2016 WSMTA Leadership Seminar

Reaching Out to Our Communities With Enthusiasm

Started: Saturday September 24 at 12:00 p.m.

Finished: on Sunday September 25 at 12:00 p.m.

Hilton Garden Inn, Yakima WA

Sponsored by the WSMTA Teacher Enrichment Fund

For many years, leaders and members attended the seminar at their own expense for all costs: meeting room, food, housing, speaker fees. With the growth of the Teacher Enrichment Fund, the cost for attendees is minimal. This fund pays for half the hotel rate for each leader, hotel meeting room rent and equipment needs, speaker fees (including travel and meals), and additional food costs. The Teacher Enrichment Fund also totally covers the cost for the biennial adjudicator conference. Member dues, participation in WSMTA events, and your donations have created an affordable, professional and inspirational event for our WSMTA leadership volunteers.

Last year’s Leadership Seminar included focus sessions on increasing our visibility in our communities and developing our skills as enthusiastic arts advocates. Attendees learned about outreach programs around the state that are bringing more awareness of student and teacher opportunities and benefits available through WSMTA.

Registration for this event is currently closed.

Registration for the 2017 Leadership Seminar will be available in June 2017.

The dates for the 2017 Leadership Seminar are September 23-24, 2017.
