NSTA National Conference

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone one is having a good year! Is anyone from our bioclub group attending the conference in New Orleans? I will be there along with one of my colleagues and would like to get together with anyone that is going. George: Can I do some recruiting? :-) Silly question!
Please post and we can make some arrangements to meet.

Safety Contract Help

Hi, All! I just got my welcome packet today and I've been working on writing some by-laws for our club. The sample by-laws provided by NABT BioClub have an article on safety that mentions a "safety contract administered upon joining." I, of course, have safety contracts for my classroom, but I never thought of having one with my club. Does anyone have an example of a safety contract that they use with their club to give me some idea about how to word mine? I'd really appreciate any help I can get.
