From Our CEO

It’s hard to believe that ITEC19 is actually within reach. We began planning this event in 2016 and now we find ourselves ready to experience the result of all of our planning and preparation. I’m reminded again that we can humanly plan and prepare, but it’s God who will have the final say, the final word on what the conference will be like. It’s my prayer that as God is preparing the hearts of those that attend, he has also prepared the thoughts and hearts of those that will present. For those that are unable to make this event, podcasts of the keynote and strand speakers will be released in due course.

May we be deeply challenged and transformed as we seek to re-imagine personally, and collectively, what our practice looks like. From the classroom, to the work shed, to the principal’s office, to the bus run.

As you may be aware, over the past three ITEC conferences, we have built up a relationship with Leishman and Associates who manage professionally, the logistics of the conference. The CEO, Paula Leishman has become well known and dear to us. Recently, Paula was diagnosed with Uterine Ca ncer and has undergone major su rgery for this. Her prognosis is good, but she will not be joining us at ITEC. Other members of her team will be with us. The wonderful thing about this is that we have been able to support Paula through this time, and she has felt very upheld by our prayers and messages of support.

National Conference and AGM
Our annual National Conference and AGM was held in May, and the responses to that time have been very positive. If you would like to engage with the talks from that conference, here are the links to the recordings:
