It's time to renew your NYBTA
As you know, NYBTA has gone GREEN and
has ceased sending meeting notices via USPS and is sending notices via
e-mail and also posting them on our web site. This saves paper

We are passing the savings on to
you. NYBTA HAS CUT ITS MEMBERSHIP DUES IN HALF.
We will continue to have meetings and
events and continue to be a clearinghouse for information of use to
biology teachers. Information of events sponsored by other
organizations will be posted on our web site and e-mailed to you as a

and field trips in a collegial atmosphere that makes professional
development meaningful and enjoyable.

professionally, but increases the number of colleagues with whom one can
