Speak at NCSM in April, 2012 in Philadelphia

Terri Belcher, Executive director of NCSM, reminded me that people sometimes confuse the two conferences (NCTM and NCSM) so to help clarify the distinction:

The National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) is a mathematics leadership organization for educational leaders that provides professional learning opportunities necessary to support and sustain improved student achievement. It is also an affiliate group of NCTM.

Their conference is held every year at the same location and during the same week as the annual NCTM Conference. Next year it is in Phildelphia April 23-25, 2012. The NCTM meeting is from April 25-28, 2012. The speaker proposals for NCTM were closed as of May 1st, but it's not too late to apply to speak at the NCSM Conference. The call for 2012 Philly speakers closes June 3, so there is plenty of time to submit a proposal to speak and to encourage others to do the same. Link to proposal form.
