The 2009 Annual Membership Meeting was broadcast live on the web on April 4th, 2009 from the SAA office in Boulder, Colorado. It features the new teacher development video “A Suzuki Teacher’s Pledge”, a tour of the SAA office, and lots of news and trivia.

Institute Training Registration

SAA’s new green training registration system for Institutes is almost ready to go. Institute Directors and Teacher Trainers should keep an eye out for further information coming by email very soon.

One of the benefits to you as a course participant: no more forms to remember to mail in after your course. The Institutes will submit you training registrations electronically, and you will be registered within weeks of completing your course.

133 new members have joined the SAA in the last month. Welcome!
