Greetings Everyone!

Welcome back to a new school year and a new year of speech education and forensic competition.

In the Fall, of course, the focus of our organization is our annual convention at State College. This year promises to be highly informative and, as always, a good time to socialize and network among friends old and new.

The Conference will be held on October 16th and 17th at theRanmada Conference & Golf Hotel. We are presently finalizing the program, but we can say it will include presentations on new events in NSDA, the new child-abuse clearance law in Pennsylvania and how it can apply to forensics, coaching with apps, our usual new coaches workshop and other goodies.

This year we are implementing an electronic registration. Your registration can be done on this website. Just follow the link above to Conference Registration. If you need the paper registration form to show someone, there is also a link on that page to download it so that you can print it out. There is no need to send that form in, however. You can complete your registration just by filling in the boxes on the web page and pressing submit.

Once we have the program and schedule finalized, we will post it on this website so that you can see it and, if you wish, download it.

Take care, Everyone. I’m looking forward to seeing you all at the Conference.

John Buettler
