A Message from our Executive Director

Valued MassCUE community: I hope that your summer was restful and restorative! Our board, staff, and committee members are busy planning for fall conference. While the team has been working tirelessly for some time, I am very excited to say for the first time (as MassCUE's new Executive Director) that registration is now open, for our fall conference!  After two years of virtual events, we are so looking forward to seeing everyone again, in person, at Gillette Stadium on October 19th and 20th. Of course, we will also continue to use the tools we acquired during the pandemic, and are offering an On Demand option as well!

As we enter a new school year, MassCUE, as always, is committed to continuing to educate, connect, and inspire our EdTech educators, and to expand our programming. In our pursuit to evolve and provide you the best that we have to offer, we will be seeking feedback from this community and beyond on how we can improve, extend our reach, and welcome others into the MassCUE community. We look forward to hearing from all of you! Until then, happy first days of school! We can't wait to hear about all the cool new tech tools you're using. 🙂

In gratitude,
Savvy Demers
