Conference Presenter Sponsorship
SAME Sponsorship Project
for OAME Annual Conference Presenters
OAME holds an annual conference where math educators all over the world converge to engage in professional learning and networking. This year, the OAME Board is hosting the conference in Toronto at Humber College, North Campus on Thursday, May 3rd and Friday, May 4th, 2018.
SAME is offering to its members sponsorship in the form of 1 day of Occasional Teacher coverage (should it be necessary) to offset the cost of presenting at the conference.
This is the first year we are offering it to support SAME members to take these leadership opportunities. Hopefully we can continue offering this in the coming years.
