PRECONVENTION MEETINGS (See schedule below)
In order to prepare to perform their duties, delegates have a responsibility to attend a preconvention meeting. Preconvention dates: April 24, April 25, May 2, May 3, May 4. (This is optional.)

The Annual Meeting Preconvention schedule is available at www.massteacher.org/am. ALL elected and potential delegates should plan to attend one of the preconvention meetings to receive important materials and information on the issues to be covered at Annual Meeting. This is the only place you can receive a printed copy of the budget and MTA Bylaws.

HOTEL
Delegates living more than 25 miles from Boston who plan to attend both Friday and Saturday qualify for an MCCC-paid shared, double-occupancy hotel room at the conference hotel. The hotel is the Boston Marriott Copey Place hotel. The MCCC makes all arrangements. View this separate pdf page.

STIPEND
MCCC delegates receive a $50 stipend for each day of attendance. This will be sent as a check within one week after the meeting. Delegates must check in with Dennis Fitzgerald in the meeting each day to be eligible.
