Abstract Deadline: January 27.

The National Marine Educators Association 2014 conference Call for Papers is now open! The National Marine Educators Association is an organization of classroom teachers, informal educators, university professors, and scientists from around the world. NMEA works to advance the understanding and protection of our freshwater and marine ecosystems by promoting national initiatives in education and conservation, including ocean literacy. Please consider presenting a session at this year's conference.

The annual conference will be held in Annapolis, Maryland from July 21-24 at the Lowes Annapolis Hotel.
