About MTSA
Annual Conference
Board Information

The Michigan Transition Services Association would like to invite you to attend our Annual Spring Conference “Celebrate Transition” March 17 through 19, at the Bavarian Inn Lodge, in Frankenmuth Michigan.  This year we would like to “celebrate” the many successes that our students and consumers have achieved throughout the last 20 years.

We will be opening our Conference this year with a pre-conference workshop on Wednesday, with a presentation of the “Reality Store” in the morning and a Transition Coordinators networking and information session in the afternoon.  We look forward to inspirational keynote speakers on Thursday and Friday and will be offering approximately 54 concurrent sessions sure to address the diverse needs of students with disabilities and the individuals who provide services for them.

We would like to encourage you to consider becoming a presenter or participating in our Wednesday evening poster session.  The continued success of the MTSA annual spring conference is largely due to individuals like you, sharing your innovative programs and ideas for serving students with a variety of disabilities and transition needs.

To insure your participation in the conference at the most reasonable rate please register early.  To qualify for an early registration rate, registrations must be postmarked on or before February 2, 2004.  Late registration is considered to be those registrations received between February 3 and February 13, 2004. Registrations postmarked after February 13 will be considered a “last minute” registration.  On-site registration is available on Wednesday evening March 17 and on Thursday, March 18.  If your registration is being paid for by a purchase order please advise your district or employer of the registration deadlines.  Registration deadlines are firm.

If you are mailing your hotel reservation form, please remember to send it directly to the Bavarian Inn.  Any reservation forms sent with conference registrations will be returned to you, which will delay your hotel reservations.  The rooms at the Bavarian Inn fill quickly so please make these reservations early.

We are looking forward to another exciting conference and would like to welcome all those of you who have attended before and extend a special welcome to those of you who will be attending for the first time.
