Holiday Issue 2015



2016 MACUL

The MACUL Conference, Michigan's premier educational technology event, will be held March 9-11 at the DeVos Place in Grand Rapids. Over 5,000 educators attended last year's conference which beat the previous attendance record set the year before!

Once again, REMC1 is planning on chartering a bus to bring participants to MACUL. There will be plenty of room on the bus so you don't have to worry about traveling in winter weather. The bus will also have wifi internet, movies, and colleagues to collaborate with all the way down and back.The cost per person last year was only $25, but will depend on the number of participants. If you would like to take the bus, please take a moment to complete our interest survey.

If teachers are planning on attending this great conference, we recommend that you make your hotel arrangments as soon as possible as the hotels will fill quickly. A list of MACULdiscounted hotels near the DeVos Place can be viewed at Hotel listing. We are recommending the Holiday Inn if you are planning on riding the "REMC1 bus." Please note, it is best to book your hotel on the MACUL registration page instead of contacting the hotel directly. Registration and hotel information can be found at MACUL Conference.

Additional questions can be directed to Steve Kass,, as he'll be coordinating the trip.
