If nothing it else, it appears she is paying us, since she is paying a conference fee like everyone else :) Seems like a win win to me! My vote is yes and yes From: gsis_admins-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gsis_admins-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Deason, Noralee Sent: Thursday, January 17, 2013 3:36 PM To: gsis_admins@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gsis_admins] Re: Two issues that we need to handle We weren't going to have a PAID speaker during lunch to save on our costs. If she is not charging us anything and it isn't a sales presentation, then I'm good with it. My boss was looking her up, too. She has spoken at some prestigious national conferences, so this might actually help elevate our organization.

Priscilla has moved that we extend the conference rate of $230 until February 1. Would anyone like to second this motion? 2. Pearson is sending Dr. Kelly Burling to present education effectiveness common core sessions. Dr. Burling is the Director of Educator Effectiveness at Pearson. Dr. Burling has offered to speak on the importance of data entry and how the role of data specialists affect data quality and research information that teachers use to support student learning. Would we like to accept her offer and have her speak during lunch on Tuesday? As far as we know, there will be no charge.
