2020 MARE/MO K-8 Conference - A Big Success!

Dr. Danny Humble receiving a MARE Board Appreciation Plaque from Dr. Troy Marnholtz

The 2020 MARE/MO K-8 Conference was held October 21-23, 2020 at The Lodge of Four Seasons in beautiful Lake Ozark, Missouri.  A special "thank you" goes out to all of those who attended, presented and exhibited at our conference this year!  In spite of COVID-19, our conference was a huge success!  A big shout out to the amazing staff at the Lodge of Four Seasons, for helping us pull this off while maintaining protocols that encouraged hygiene, social distancing, and safety!  Attached below are lists of our Conference Level Sponsors and Event Sponsors.  It goes without saying that we absolutely could not conduct our annual conference at such an affordable rate ($165.00 per person including Conference Registration and Meal Package) without our very generous support from these amazing Associate Members and Conference Sponsors.  Also attached below are links to various presentations from many of the presenters.  We will be posting pictures from the conference to this site later this week so be sure to check those out as well.  Next year's conference will be held Wednesday, October 20th through Friday, October 22nd!  Please make plans now to attend as we continue to make this your fall conference of choice!
