Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee Conference

EMAC 35th Anniversary Conference

SUMMARY: All MTA members are invited to this year’s EMAC conference, which will celebrate the Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee’s 35th anniversary. Standing on a Great Foundation is the theme of this year’s conference, which begins Friday night with a 35th anniversary dinner.

New this year is a free interactive workshop, The Skin that We Speak: Exploring Culture and Language in the Classroom and Beyond, presented by Beau Stubblefield-Tave, a principal in the Center for Cultural Fluency. This “bridge” workshop links the Just For New Teachers (JFNT) 13th Annual Conference to the EMAC conference.

This year’s special honoree is Louise Gaskins, who was instrumental in establishing MTA’s Minority Affairs Committee — the forerunner of EMAC — as well as the Human and Civil Rights Council and MTA’s Minority Involvement Plan. Over the years, Gaskins became a leading spokesperson for minority affairs at the MTA, and she is still active today.

This will be a memorable 35th anniversary celebration.

DATE: Friday-Saturday, December 5-6, 2014

LOCATION: Sheraton Four Points, 1125 Boston Providence Turnpike, Norwood, MA

WHO CAN ATTEND: All MTA members are invited to this year’s EMAC conference. Those attending the Just For New Teachers Conference are issued a special welcome. Members of the Student Education Association of Massachusetts (SEAM), are also invited to attend at no charge.
