Dear CACEE Members,
I know this a busy time of year for all CACEE members, but I wanted to wish you great success working with students on campus and during the Fall recruitment cycle. Your national association has been active on many fronts over the past several months, and we have plans underway for more activity as we move into 2016. On behalf of the CACEE National Board, I would like to update you on some of our recent activities and our plans for the coming year.
Throughout 2014-2015, CACEE members have been involved in a number of successful PD events across the country. These events are largely volunteer driven and speak to the dedication and professionalism of our members. Without their commitment we would not be able to offer these learning opportunities to our members. Below is a summary of these activities:
CACEE Board Activities
After the CACEE National Conference the National Board made the decision and commitment to engage in a strategic planning session. National Board members met for two days on August 10 and 11 to evaluate, strategize and develop a plan for the next 3 years. It was an intense two days that will set a direction and a template for the National Board to follow. We hope to have a summary report completed in mid October.
In the spirit of listening and communicating with our membership, the National Board will be changing how we meet throughout the year. Historically, the CACEE National Board has met in-person 4 times a year: August, December, March, and June. It was proposed that we look at alternative options to reduce cost, so we will be implementing virtual meetings for our March National Board Meetings. We will continue to look at more efficient and cost cutting strategies throughout the year.
As President, I have made a commitment to meeting as often as possible with the four CACEE Regional Advisory Boards (RAB) across the country. (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, West). These RAB’s represent the regions of the country and are the backbone of CACEE. I would like to thank all of the Chairs and volunteers for the work you do. Your RAB Chairs are:
Atlantic: Christine Frigault
Quebec: Lorrie Quigg
Ontario: Frances Humphries
West: Corrine Bell
If you would like to become more active in your RAB, then I would recommend that you contact me or Paul Smith and we will put you in touch with our Chairs.
