*About the ID & R Assembly
The Office of Migrant Education has informed NASDME that it will not hold the traditional ID&R
Coordinators Meeting on Saturday, April 10, 2010, before the National Migrant Education Conference.
Because of the need communicated by many migrant educators to come together to discuss ID&R
issues, issues at the heart of implementation of the program, NASDME will hold a free ID&R Assembly,
open to all, on Saturday, April 10, 1 - 4 pm at the Anaheim Marriott. The event will be called, “¡MIRA!
Migrant Identification and Recruitment Assembly” — Shining the Light on Who is Eligible for the MEP.
The Forum is designed for State Migrant Education Directors, all other
administrators, ID&R Recruitment Specialists/Recruiters, and other interested
persons. Special focus will be placed on the nuts and bolts of recruitment, the
difficult parts of the process, as well as current federal regulations which define
terms and set forth procedures for the Recruitment Process. Presenters will
include experienced ID&R trainers, as well as experienced recruitment personnel
from states, regions, and local districts. There will be ample opportunity for
discussion and the raising of difficult ID&R questions. Questions for which there
is not a clear answer will be forwarded to OME for its consideration. NASDME will
post any OME answers received on the NASDME website.
There are no fees associated with this Assembly, which will be considered part
of the Conference activities. While there is no charge for attending this half-day
session, for planning purposes, we ask on the Conference Registration form
whether you currently plan to attend the session.

Anaheim and Orange County:
They’re So California!
In the center of Southern California, Anaheim and Orange County are exactly what you think of when you
imagine that part of the Golden State. Beautiful weather, palm trees, gorgeous beaches, theme parks, culture
and history abound!
Orange County is an exciting and trendsetting destination, known for its physical beauty, as well as its long and
proud history. In 1769, the first Spanish expeditions crossed Orange County. Father Junipero Serra later walked
this territory and missions were built, the first in the area in San Juan Capistrano.
The area has seen many changes over the years. Anaheim itself used to be the heart of agricultural land and, in
fact, Orange County got its name to attract more settlers to develop the surrounding farmland, including citrus
groves. Fifty years ago, it was the world’s largest exporting center of Valencia oranges and citrus by-products.
Today, vibrant Orange County is more than one-third Latino and Santa Ana, the county’s largest city, is 80%
Latino. Anaheim, now an urban center, is itself more than half Latino. Anaheim is famous for many reasons,
including being the home of a world-famous theme park and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim—the 2009
American League West Division champions!
Come join us for hard work, to hear new ideas, learn new skills, and enjoy the warm sunshine and ocean views
of the area. Anaheim in April! Come experience Orange County and see for yourself why “It’s So California!”
