Have a great idea to share with your Suzuki colleagues?
Sessions on instrument technique, pedagogy, history, musicianship, research and technology provide a framework for every SAA conference. Just as in the past, well have both general and instrument-specific sessions to support our Conference theme, Powered by Community.
We’re looking for 50-minute solo, panel and team presentations, mini sessions (10-12 minute live presentations), and nano sessions (5 minute videos). All proposals must be submitted online no later than October 25.
Find your friends and colleagues! Every Active SAA member has a profile page in the online member directory with their contact information, including email addresses. You can add your picture and professional biography to your page, and opt to show your registered SAA training, too. Check out Board Chair Marilyn Kesler’s page for an example.
Member profiles can also be found through the general website search when you’re logged in (in the top right of every page), making finding your colleagues even easier.
You can change your website privacy settings to customize your online experience and control what information you share with whom. Log in and review your web profile settings.
To protect your privacy, the online member directory is only accessible to other SAA members, not the general public. You can choose to make you profile page available publicly by changing your web profile settings. A public profile will show up in Google searches for your name and SAA website searches by non-members.
Hope you are enjoying the beginning of the Fall semester! As you plan for your fall concerts and special events, don’t forget to think of Suzuki Americas 2014—Featuring the Latin American Suzuki Ensemble and additional special events for all Suzuki students from all parts of the SAA region—North, Central, and South America!
