A Message from IBEA President  Dena Irwin









      It is hard to believe another school year is in full swing and many of you have been in session for weeks! I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing summer filled with family and friends.

      We have a very exciting conference planned for November 21-22, 2014, at the Wyndham Hotel near the old airport in Indianapolis. There will be seven tracks offered covering personal finance, preparing for college & careers, information technology, marketing/entrepreneurship, middle level, leadership, and one for vendor products.   Tonya Skinner, a business teacher extraordinaire, is our keynote speaker from Missouri. You will love Tonya's vitality and her plethora of lesson plans. Early bird sessions, vendor exhibits, awards luncheon, past presidents' reception, IDOE update, and more await you! Please mark your calendar and get that professional development request filed!

      IBEA will be offering more professional development to Indiana's business and marketing teachers in the spring. We have plans to offer regional workshops related to what is going on in your area of the state. Contact your regional representative to learn what they have planned for you and let them know what you would like them to focus on this year.

      We have a very special event planned for anyone who has served as a past-president for our organization. If you are a past-president, please contact me to get added to the special surprise we have organized to take place at the November conference. I promise all of us will be smiling and dancing in the aisles....more on that later!

      In closing, I wish you all the best for a good school year. The years seem to go by so quickly most days as it will be Christmas time before we blink an eye. As your president, please let me know how I can better serve you and make your year better. I look forward to seeing you in November.

All the best, Dena
