The Northeast Region has been one of the most active regions since the parent ASTE organization has its roots in NYC dating back to the 1920s. We enjoy a robust conference each year that has been held in MA, upstate NY, VT and the NYC metro area. Our region encourages in-service teachers and graduate students to attend our conference and present their work. During each conference since 2014, travel scholarships to the international conference are awarded to graduate students who present exemplary work at this regional conference. We are thankful to our longstanding members and invite new members to become part of our community. Hope to see you in at our next meeting!
