August 17-18, 2012 • Grand Rapids, Michigan

Does your theatre’s education program need a boost? Do you have great ideas that you can share with others about your education program? What to offer, setting curriculum, juggling the schedule, selecting instructors, recruiting students, registration, making sure all runs smoothly -- this is just a sampling of what you will learn when you sign up for the biennial Education Directors Conference that will be hosted by the Grand Rapids (MI) Civic Theatre August 17-19.

During two days of roundtable discussions participants will share materials, exchange ideas and tackle theatre education issues guided by an experienced education director, Penelope Notter, Associate Director of Grand Rapids Civic Theatre. The conference will begin Friday afternoon and conclude late Saturday. Those who complete the conference will earn 1.5 AACTEd Units, a symbol of their commitment to continuing education.

Topics will include every aspect of conducting educational programs. Registrants will be asked to rank and add to the topics list prior to the conference, so the agenda will address the biggest concerns and needs of those attending. Plus, the conference will result in renewed enthusiasm and contacts all over the country - a network of colleagues whose friendship and support will be as close as an email or a phone call. The conference is for anyone whatever his or her title, who is responsible for their theatre’s educational programs.
