Join your MBEA colleagues for a unique experience on Wednesday, September 26 at Plexpod Westport Commons in Kansas City. The day is already packed with experience based learning opportunities, time for district meetings, updates from Lori Brewer and subject area collaborations! But wait...there's more...some famous KC BBQ is on the menu for lunch and at 9 am we will join entrepreneurs from all over the city for the weekly 1MCups! Plan to join us and bring your colleagues! We will need a firm commitment by Thursday, September 18 to help the caterer get all the good food planned and prepped. A portion of the lunch meal will be paid by the Office of Financial Literacy and the rest will be the responsibility of each attendee. More details to follow but plan on joining us and having a great day at the former Westport Middle School now Plexpod! Tour included!

Questions? Contact Patty Palmer palmerp@umkc.edu

Forward to your district members!! More details will be coming soon!

FAQs Please READ!!!

Any special directions for arriving at Plexpod Westport Commons?
There is a 39th street exit off of 71 Hwy. Go west on 39th to Warwick and turn right. Coming through the city, note there will be some "no turn signs" at that time of the morning. Go east on 39th from Main to Warwick and turn left. The old Westport HS sits high up on the hill on 39th. The ms/Plexpod is directly across the street.

Where should I park?

Park in the north lot off of 38th; the parking lot right off of 39th is for the Sundry cafe. The parking garage is for members of Plexpod only. There may be a gate in place by September 26 but if not, please do not use. There is no charge for parking. A parking map will be attached or sent to those who register, or both!

What time should I arrive?
You want to be seated in the auditorium of the former middle school (top of the steps on the 2nd floor) at 9 am. Doors will open at 8:30. If you want coffee, I suggest you stop before you arrive at Plexpod.

What should I wear?
The start up community prides themselves wearing jeans and t-shirts. I have noticed an uptick recently in a more business casual/professional style. A school shirt and slacks works!!

Registration Fees?Facility rental is being covered with funds from the disbanded KC District being held by the MBEA State Treasury in the amount of $375.

Lunch and Refreshments?
Water service will be provided through the Office of Financial Literacy in our "classroom" 3H. I do not believe there are any vending machines. You are welcome to bring all the caffeine and enery drinks you can carry! Lunch: The Office of Financial Literacy will underwrite $200 of the water service and lunch. Each registrant will be responsible for approximately $15 for their lunch payable by cash or check to NWMBEA. Heidi Daniel will be there collecting for all attendees. Please visit with palmerp@umkc.edu or 660-646-4992 for special dietary needs. The menu will be BBQ but the caterer has not been selected at this writing.


Each MBEA district will have time to meet together. Some districts will be collecting dues on this date.
