Be among leading women educators as we experience through keynote speakers the culture, history and education of Canada.

Dr. Roseann Runte will share the educational importance DKG plays in a changing world. Charlene Bearhead will explain how to reach indigenous and other students to raise their self-esteem and pride in their cultural background. Vivienne Collinson will transport us to the Arctic world with its beauty and environmental problems, and Mike Stevens will demonstrate his musical talent along with sharing how he and other musicians teach Inuit children to play instruments.

Come a day early to expand your knowledge even more at one of the pre-conference seminars, The Underground Railway or Indigenous Peoples of the 21st Century.

Attend a variety of breakouts and Ten-Minute Takeaways, a new component where presenters share information in a short period of time.

Conference meeting rooms are in the Augustus Tower of Caesar’s Resort that houses our lodging. Adjacent to the meeting rooms will be the Marketplace with a number of Canadian vendors.

If driving to Windsor, valet parking is free! Many restaurants ranging from upscale to casual are located inside of Caesar’s or within a short walking distance from the hotel.

You may like to arrange a tour ahead of time. See this issue for tour descriptions and reservation information. For baseball lovers, the Detroit Tigers play the Toronto Blue Jays on July 14-16. Some may wish to cross over to the Forum Tower that houses the casino.

Experience Canada and its many facets and savor being with other members and guests at the Northeast Regional Conference in Windsor, Ontario.
