President’s Message

July 2016

Dear OCMEA Members,

It’s hard to believe another school year has come and gone, and our sights are set on another starting.    To our returning teachers, a big welcome back: to our new teachers, welcome!

Here are some important things to remember for this year:

-our opening meeting will be a mixer held at Newburgh Brewing Co. on September 9th.  An email with RSVP will be sent, we hope you can attend!

-we are putting together a list of “chair mentors” who have chaired an all county event and are willing to help a newbie.  Isn’t that nice!  I love that we want to help one another.  We will share it at the beginning of the year.   If you’d like to add your name, please email me!

-please make sure we have your current email address.  Almost all communication will be done via email.  Check in with your colleagues to make sure they are getting our emails.

-please read, and then reread any audition scheduling materials you receive from Katie Lucas.   Deadlines are deadlines.  If you have concerns, let us know.

-please check, and then recheck the website for all other audition materials and lists.  If you have a question, ask- better safe than sorry!

-continue to reference the website throughout the year for up to date information/changes/etc.  We will email you, but information will be there as well.

-if you have any questions about anything, please reach out to any board member- we are here to help!

As always, please email me at if I can be of any assistance.  Enjoy your summer and I hope to see you in Newburgh come September!

Thank you,
