The conference will take place on October 19th-21st. Our chapter is working diligently to execute a well-planned conference! The theme for this conference is:
MOVIMIENTO: ON THE BORDERLANDS UNDER A NEW SUN
We hope that you are as excited as we are for the conference!

Remember to keep the theme of the conference in mind when submitting workshop, although it's not mandatory.
If you are interested in facilitating a workshop but are not from a recognized M.E.Ch.A. chapter, you may still submit an application, but we require that you ask for sponsorship from the recognized M.E.Ch.A. chapter closest to you.
