The Welcome Brunch on Tuesday, July 24 with first and second time convention attendees as well as all board members invited is scheduled to take place at Ray’s in the City. This event was hosted by our President-elect, Henry Meguid, as a way to give the newcomers a chance to meet a few other members in a less structured setting designed to allow for more interaction.

In addition, there was a Wednesday evening entertainment event. Co-hostesses Mary Catan and Patty Tucker, our immediate past president, have planned a tour of the Fox Theatre, and for those who joined them drinks was at the Georgian Terrace hotel after dinner.

Awards Banquet

Awards and Pro-Panel Banquet was held at the host hotel, the Marriott Marquis.


2018 Teacher of the Year was awarded to Henry Meguid.

In addition to Meguid, the finalists for the 2018 Teacher of the Year award included Bruce Greenspan of Bonita Springs FL, Jim Ricker of Knoxville TN and Edward Scanlon III of York PA.


Also congratulations to Sharon Carter becoming a certified Master Teacher.
