one of the more gratifying things i’ve been a part of in the past year was in helping to put on TEDxNYED this past march. it’s amazing to see that, even thought they’re starting to dwindle, discussions are still going on around the speakers we were able to bring together and the amazing talks they gave. it was so much fun that we decided to do it again.
we’re still finalizing our speaker lineup, looking for generous people to help us pay for it, and putting the finishing touches on the day, but we’re now accepting applications to attend. before you start thinking “i have to apply to attend this thing, and THEN have to pay a ticket fee on top of that?” it’s the reality of the situation. we’re very fortunate to have enough interest in what we’re doing that we couldn’t possibly fit everything that wants to come in our space (which, this year, is The New York Academy of Sciences). it also costs a lot of money to put on, and we need a ticket fee to help us defray costs. (we also hope that many will be able to get their schools and school districts to cover this amazing day of professional development. it’s a bargain for day-long pd filled with inspiring talks. and did i mention that we give you breakfast and lunch, too?)
so please fill out an application to attend. you won’t be disappointed, you’ll get to see the awe-inspiring views that NYAS’ location at 7 world trade center offers, and i promise you’ll learn lots of stuff, too.

I applied as soon as I saw that the #TEDxNYED application was available. I also can attest to how amazing it felt to be part of TEDxNYED1. I can’t wait to simply be an attendee at TEDxNYED2 🙂 Congrats on the superb offerings. I’m really looking forward to it.
