Greetings from the President-Elect
I wanted to give you some updates on what’s coming up in the near future for our association.
1. Elections will be happening very soon! If you’re interested in being a member of the WAEOPP board, now is the time to ask questions of its current members. This year we need to elect a new President-Elect (3-year commitment), a Treasurer (2-year commitment), and two Members-at-Large (1-year term). If you’re interested in a specific position, but have questions, please ask that particular board member what it’s like to be in that role. As a reminder, those members are:
a. President Donald Singleton: firstname.lastname@example.org
b. President-Elect Myra Gilreath: email@example.com
c. Past-President T Ullrich: firstname.lastname@example.org
d. Treasurer Judy Young: email@example.com
e. Secretary Rivi Hatt: firstname.lastname@example.org
f. Member-at-Large Trudy Bement: email@example.com
g. Member-at-Large Dan Krhin: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. MAEOPP’s Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI) is now taking applications for the class of 2015! http://www.maeopp.org/#!emerging-leaders-institute/c1fot for more information. The application is due mid-June!
a. ELI is leadership training that takes place over a long weekend every few months. Each state in the MAEOPP region sends two representatives, and the “class” works together on a project in addition to their training. The trainers are TRIO professionals from around MAEOPP.
b. If you want to increase your leadership skills, become more involved, learn about how a professional organization does its business, and make new friends, I strongly encourage you to apply.
c. You need 2 years of TRIO program experience to apply.
3. Finally, I encourage you to get involved at the committee level of WAEOPP. We are always looking for new, innovative ideas, and we welcome everyone who would like to participate. Every committee needs members! You can find descriptions of all the committee charges on our website here: http://waeopp.org/executive_board/committees As a reminder, the committees are:
