Welcome to MEOA 2010-2011

Thank you for your interest in the Massachusetts Educational Opportunity Association.  Now in our 27th year, MEOA is as vital as ever.  Thanks to our active board and membership we are well positioned to explore the opportunities and challenges facing our community.  In the past our advocacy has been focused primarily on our federal funding streams.  However, given the changing landscape we have are forging more relationships at the state level.  The MEOA board has begun work on a strategic plan to ensure a proper allocation of resources, articulate our message, and ensure our future success.

The MEOA annual conference will be held at the Beechwood Hotel in Worcester, MA, on October 18th, 2011.  The conference committee is hard at work to ensure another wonderful day of professional development and networking.  Stay tuned to the listserve and Twitter @MEAO_Online) for a theme announcement and exciting news about the website!

I want to close by encouraging every member to join me in making this an active and engaging year.  The board will be seeking your input in the strategic plan. Committees are meeting, professional development days are in the works, and membership is at an all time high.  Please remember to keep an eye out for that special student or client working towards their college degree and nominate them for an MEOA scholarship this spring.  Thank you everyone for your commitment to college access for all.
