Read what some of the 2010 attendees had to say about the highlights of their Annual Conference experience in San Diego:

The Professional Growth opportunities: The focus on being math leaders, whether in schools, districts, states, universities, or nationally.
  The sessions were helpful to me in my position as a math specialist/leader at the elementary level in my school and as a participant in statewide initiatives to improve math instruction at the elementary level.
  I was able to learn more about coaching and math leadership- I felt like I walked away with a job description and some solid information to share with district leaders.
  I loved the entire conference! For my work, this is one of the BEST conferences I can attend. Thank you for all your efforts!
  
The Speakers: I really enjoyed being able to attend and hear from the speakers. They were all very informative and provided valuable information. I felt both affirmed in my work and challenged to continue striving to improve teacher education.
  The sessions were filled with a variety of different information that helped me and my colleagues get out of each of them what we wanted. I was able to design my days to fit what I needed.
  Keynote address was awesome! It was right on about a very timely topic-building a professional learning community in your school.
  The opportunity to hear from (as my colleague would say) the "rock stars" of math.
  
The Networking Opportunities: I got to spend three days with two new department chairman colleagues from my District and that was invaluable. It is nice to know that others are in the same position as myself.
  Meeting people from other states and learning what they are doing to meet the needs of 21st Century Mathematics teaching and learning.
  Seeing colleagues from my work in curriculum, and learning about the Common Core Standards from knowledgeable professionals.
  Networking, getting ideas of how to lead change in mathematics in my district, getting support for change.
