Hello Florida Educators,
As we prepare for the upcoming 2014 FATE Conference at Lynn University in Boca Raton on October 3rd and 4th, we realize that a scheduling error has occurred. Traditionally, the FATE Conference has been held during the first weekend in October. This year, the conference conflicts with the Jewish holiday, Yom Kippur on October 4th. It is with great sadness that this holiday was overlooked when scheduling the conference last year. The FATE board has noted the future dates of Yom Kippur in the upcoming years so that this conflict will not occur again.
Unfortunately, we realized our error too late to change the dates for this year’s conference. At this time, those interested in attending only on Friday afternoon, October 3rd, because of religious observances may do so at a discounted rate of $30, which includes membership in FATE. Those who submitted a proposal but cannot attend the full conference due to Yom Kippur, have been scheduled to present on Friday afternoon and will be our guests at no cost. We regret that some of our colleagues will be unable to join us for the entire conference.
The FATE Board looks forward to collaborating with all Florida educators in the future as we strengthen our inclusive organization.
