Summary of Recent Affiliate Accomplishments and Upcoming Activities: 

On Novemer 2, 2017 we held our Business Meeting during the North Carolina National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Annual Conference.  As we move forward, if you have any recommendations to further our mission as a voice for mathematics educators in North Carolina, please contact Temple Walkowiak  (tawalkow@ncsu.edu), AMTE-NC President.

The first part of the meeting was devoted to a panel discussion with four members of the educational community. The panel focused on the vision for mathematics teacher preparation in North Carolina. Panel members included Mark Jewell, North Carolina Association of Educators President; Dr. Michael Maher, Assistant Dean for Professional Education and Accreditation at North Carolina State University; Dr. Ellen McIntyre, Dean for the College of Education at University of North Carolina, Charlotte; and North Carolina
House of Representative Amos Quick. The information shared during this part of the session was insightful and helped members better understand the direction of teacher preparation in the state of North Carolina.

Lastly, it was decided that we will hold our first annual Spring Retreat during
2018. Once a day and time are finalized, we will share that information with
you. The focus of the Spring Retreat will be; networking, professional development, and discussion around how methods courses are implemented within each respective university.
