#MPTC2017 has ended
Thanks for making the 2017 convention a great one!  Please help us plan for next year by completing a session evaluation for those sessions that you attended.
For every online evaluation form that you complete (you must supply your email address) you will be entered in a draw for one of three parking spaces at the GP Composite High School for next year’s Convention. Two of those spaces are INSIDE the high school’s automotive shop and one is outside in the principal’s spot.
Simply choose any of the sessions below and click on the "Session Feedback" button (or go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MPTC17 directly).
We are also collecting information about the overall experience teachers had at Convention. To complete this survey please go to http://fluidsurveys.com/s/MPTC2017/.

The ATA is also collecting feedback on convention as an overall event and is looking for your ideas about how teachers’ conventions could be changed so they better meet your professional learning needs.  Please take the time to fill out the Convention Review and Looking Forward surveys which can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ConventionReview.
