On November 13, 2010 the Monterey Institute hosted the Northern Regional CATESOL conference with nearly 400 people in attendance. This conference involved a tremendous amount of work and contributions from the student body at MIIS, from arriving in the early morning to prepare breakfast, to translating speeches and presenting, and to even co-chairing the conference.
