I would first like to thank all the individuals who gave their time to speak at the conference, I know for some of you, this took you away from your home and family, and we appreciate it. Second I would like to thank TASBO for their support of this conference, we really could not have done it without you. To the TIPMAPS Board – you all deserve a “round of applause” thank you for helping with obtaining door prize items; speaking, helping with set up and making sure sign in sheets were completed. Finally, thank you all who attended this workshop, we had a small group (132) but you were all engaged. All the talks have been posted to the TASBO website. Click here to be directed to that page.
For those of you who could not make it or were not aware of this conference – start planning now! The Facility Masters Group will be meeting with TIPMAPS to determine the date and location of the conference next year. Know this, the Statewide School IPM Coordinators Conference is here to stay, so if you need CEU credit or really want to make your IPM program successful, this is the conference for you, budget for it.
