2018 MELEd Conference is Almost Upon Us: Register Now! - By Erin Cary, Member Relations Director

The 5th Annual Minnesota English Learner Education (MELEd) Conference will be held November 15-17, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Minneapolis, MN (parking included!).

The Minnesota English Learner Education Conference is a partnership between MinneTESOL and the Minnesota Department of Education. It is a merger of the annual MinneTESOL Fall Conference and the Minnesota ESL, Bilingual, and Migrant Education Conference. The conference will be held at a NEW LOCATION at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Minneapolis, MN—on-site parking will be included.

We’re thrilled to welcome keynotes Bonny Norton (Friday) and Ester de Jong (Saturday), along with many fantastic vendors, cultural organizations and invited speakers. And best of all, EL educators of all stripes will be presenting on topics of interest to our field!
