Thank you for offering that option! I typically attend and cannot this year -- However, I have highly encouraged my current intern to go and attend in person! It is always a great conference!!
Xiomara Medina
58:11
that definitely incurs higher AV costs to have the equipment in multiple spaces
Maureen Ponce
59:38
how much in advance of the conference do recordings need to be submitted?
Rose Zollinger
01:00:03
Western md travels far too
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:00:03
Thanks for that feedback, @Priscilla! We're sorry you won't be able to join us, but we look forward to seeing your intern. What's their name?
Priscilla (Sue) Young
01:01:08
Her name is Viveka Dennis/ Part of Johns Hopkins University/ she is a practicum student. And... the Eastern Shore is beautiful - location is great! :)
Kathleen Klecan
01:01:09
I really liked that - we did something similar as a local organization and it was popular too. 🙂
Laura Jones
01:01:56
I did and its already spent! AHAH
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:02:03
Great, thanks! We will keep an eye out :)
Priscilla (Sue) Young
01:03:16
Thanks!
Xiomara Medina

pics of our winners were lovely
Laura Jones
01:05:29
And you looked beautiful!
Kathleen Klecan
01:05:41
Thanks! 🙂
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:06:26
Similar to us representing our members. They're just people!
Tracey Spain
01:08:38
I think that is a great idea.
Rose Zollinger
01:09:25
I think this is a great idea!feel like many counties are opting to hire more school social workers to support student mental health needs.
Rose Zollinger
01:09:40
*I feel
Priscilla (Sue) Young
01:09:41
That is a great idea!! I agree that we need to have some additional support to help state legislature to better understand what we do.
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:10:36
Great idea
Tracey Spain
01:11:00
How much would a lobbyist cost?
Allie Downey
01:12:00
Can we get someone to come to an elected board meeting and then the elected board can present that information in the June meeting?
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:12:15
That's what I was thinking @Allie
Xiomara Medina
01:13:00
I would just want to make sure that we relay the information correctly. Lord knows I would jumble that up lol
Xiomara Medina
01:26:28
Jalapeño is an essential member of our board and his voice needs to be heard lol
Allie Downey
01:26:40
Haha!
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:29:08
Hahah he agrees @Xiomara
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:29:18
LOVE that!
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:29:36
mhoyt@mscaonline.org
Rose Zollinger
01:30:39
Thank you, Marian!
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:32:26
My pleasure!
Allie Downey
01:32:44
@Bill- we need access to that link
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)

@Marian- we don't have access
Allie Downey
01:33:55
You're great with that Bill!
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:36:26
Members Only page?
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:36:38
Agreed
Nikki Poindexter Ham

https://www.mscaonline.org/
Rose Zollinger
01:37:04
Top page/ members only makes sense to me
Allie Downey
01:37:50
I think it would be too clutered
Rose Zollinger
01:38:15
If it helps us pay for the lobbyist I’m all for it :)
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:38:23
Since we're not trying to make a profit, there isn't a big need at this time, but it could be helpful if we're trying to earn more money to support our lobbyist funding
Laura Jones
01:38:35
Great idea
Allie Downey
01:38:42
that's what I was thinking, Marian
Allie Downey
01:38:56
YAY!
Allie Downey
01:39:16
what's our goal?
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:39:36
We wanted to grow by at least 10%, which we have
Allie Downey
01:39:48
awesome...nice work!
Allie Downey
01:39:54
that's phenominal
Nikki Poindexter Ham
01:40:01
This is awesome!!!!
Priscilla (Sue) Young
01:40:03
I agree / funds could go towards lobbyist to help us -- :)
Laura Jones
01:41:24
That's great!
Allie Downey
01:42:02
Great way to get our merchandise out there too!
Rose Zollinger
01:43:08
This is great!
Jackie Cheaves, CCPS
01:45:53
They're coming back, Bill!!!
Rose Zollinger
01:48:19
I would love that. I have been hoping to create a tri county school counselors association, so maybe we can kick it off with a social/ mixer.
Rose Zollinger
01:48:55
Lol! Whoops that was meant as a pm to Kate.
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:49:33
We appreciate you, Ms. Cheaves!
Xiomara Medina
01:49:37
Love that Rose!
Allie Downey
01:49:39
exactly- we need to get more counties to pay for everyones
Xiomara Medina
01:49:52
Happy to help you get that started
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:50:22
membership@mdschoolcounselor.org
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:51:04
Yes! We will have to think about that again/
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:51:07
.*
William Marchione
01:51:24
I forgot about the food trucks, that was a great idea
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:53:05
I sent a list of PD requests for all members to Ed.
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:55:31
We appreciate all that you do, Mia!
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:56:27
Through the Teachers Democracy Project
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:56:32
It was great!
Kathleen Klecan
01:57:46
I agree - that has recently come up here in Frederick County. Thanks so much for everything you are working towards!
Maureen Ponce
01:58:02
Yes Mia, Thank you!!
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:58:07
https://www.facebook.com/tdpbaltimore Scroll down to Jan. 24
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
01:58:20
I'm quick with the tech haha
Maureen Ponce
01:58:26
Maybe search for a health advoacate that might have some pointers, talking ponts?
Tracey Spain
01:59:57
Holly is doing a lot of things behind the scenes working with the Blueprint especially in regards to NBCTs not being included in the additional funds.
Priscilla (Sue) Young
02:00:17
Agree! Holly has been doing a lot behind the scenes!!
Tracey Spain
02:00:43
Thankful for her advocacy and educating us
Tracey Spain
02:01:49
The biggest question is are counselors teachers
Rose Zollinger
02:02:00
Our county is offering a $10,000 stipend for teachers seeking National Board cert
Tracey Spain
02:02:41
We are as well but school counselors are not included in our county if they have NBCT
Priscilla (Sue) Young
02:03:03
Same here / NBCT/ not being included
Priscilla (Sue) Young
02:03:31
Also NBCC/NCSC -- Still trying to get recognized
Jackie Cheaves, CCPS
02:03:50
We get the stipend in Charles County for NCC
Jackie Cheaves, CCPS
02:04:09
It's not 10,000!!!!
Maureen Ponce
02:04:12
Its also about taking things off our plates that is a barrier to direct service.
Rose Zollinger
02:04:28
They have not excluded counselors in our county…yet
Priscilla (Sue) Young
02:04:37
Rose - what county are you in?
Rose Zollinger
02:04:43
Worcester
Priscilla (Sue) Young
02:04:48
Thanks
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:04:54
Great!More counselors would surely get NCC status if they had additional compensation. The NCE is an expensive exam; most might not see the need or benefit of paying for it if there is no monetary incentive.
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:05:59
That was a great idea, Allie. I would love to continue our shout outs on the radio!
Tracey Spain
02:06:06
Have a great day everyone. I have to jump to another meeting.
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:06:15
Bye, Tracey!
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:06:47
Whatcha talking about, IG Queen?
Priscilla (Sue) Young
02:09:30
Thank you all - Have to log off :)
Xiomara Medina
02:13:32
Have a great day everyone! running to the next meeting
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:16:03
Position Details: The regional representative communicates regional needs to the board. The Southern Regional Representative is representing Charles, St. Mary’s, and Calvert Counties.
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:16:33
That's called peer pressure, Bill
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:22:20
Position Details: The regional representative communicates regional needs to the board. The Northern Regional Representative is representing Baltimore City, Baltimore, Harford, and Carroll Counties.
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:24:45
I think we've thought about that before, but it is less feasible to get 23 reps versus six
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:25:47
If I remember correctly, we discussed county supervisors suggesting folks from their county to provide feedback, even if they're not an official rep
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:26:29
We have difficulty maintaining regional reps, so county reps would be even harder :(
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:27:40
Having connections in each county is a great way of collaborating with our county supervisors too!
Alexis Thompson
02:29:42
Calla-Russ
Allie Downey
02:30:15
@Alexis- what is her title?
Alexis Thompson
02:30:41
she's in human resources
Allie Downey
02:31:05
human resources for what school? business?
Alexis Thompson
02:32:06
the Archdiocese of Washington - it's kind of like the county/region equivalent for private Catholic schools (not a perfect explanation/comparison though haha)
Maureen Ponce
02:32:42
haha. :-)
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:32:58
https://www.linkedin.com/in/lisa-calla-russ-phr-07a116aIf that's helpful
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:35:07
I imagine it wouldn't even be a position anymore
Allie Downey
02:35:34
I'm just wondering if we hold off on that as an election position
Allie Downey
02:35:49
maybe we do that next year instead of this year
William Marchione
02:36:13
I had many more connections 20 years ago when I did it
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:36:32
I think we could have the information on that position by next Board meeting. Fingers crossed!
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:38:28
June 4 next meeting?
Marian Hoyt, High School VP (she/her)
02:38:46
