  • We put on a large German Day event that attracts over 400 students
  • We provide mentors for new teachers who just entered the profession.

Please consider using the autorenewal form for your membership to ensure that your local chapter receives a portion of your dues!  Our chapter receives a check in early spring each year for a portion of the members' national dues.  This funds our activities, workshops, German Day, etc.  We receive no portion from dues paid later in the year.
