You are cordially invited to attend our Fall meeting, "Sustaining and Strengthening German Programs in North Carolina" at Elon University on Saturday, September 8, 2012 from 9:00-4:00, hosted by Scott Windham and David Neville. Our guest speaker is Stephen Van Orden (Utah chapter of AATG), who brings many innovative ideas to the table on promoting and advocating for German at the K-12 and college/university levels. The conference is made possible by the generous support of AATG.
We hope the topic of the conference will be of interest to many of you. All AATG members and prospective members are welcome to attend. The conference also provides an excellent opportunity to meet with colleagues of all levels, to learn about how we can sustain and strengthen German programs across the state, and participate in organizational decisions that will impact our chapter. During the business meeting we will vote for our vice president, secretary, and treasurer, and approve our awards committee as well as receive updates on Deutsches Wochenende (Camp Caraway, November 9-10, 2012) and German Day 2013 (at UNC-Greensboro, Wednesday, March 6, 2013). It is also a great way to earn CEUs and, for non-members, to meet with fellow professionals and weigh the benefits of membership.
Please plan to attend!
P.S. For those traveling to Elon on Friday, there are several good options for dinner near campus. Scott plans to have dinner with the guest speaker, Stephen Van Orden, at Simply Thai, 2041 Timberline Station Rd (http://mysimplythai.com/), around 6:45 depending on travel time from the airport. The restaurant is less than a mile from campus. If Thai food doesn’t interest you, there are two options adjacent to campus. Pandora’s Pies on North Williamson Avenue serves pizza, calzones, beer, and ice cream in an upbeat setting with plenty of students. Town Table, just down the street, serves more upscale American cuisine (steaks, fish, burgers, salads) and is popular with faculty and administrators.
