  • 1.  Committee charge revisions for Friday's meeting

    Posted Mar 01, 2023 04:36 PM

    I've spent all afternoon reviewing committee charges that have been requested through my Connect request to committee chairs and other planning, and I finally have the list done, pending any last-minute requests by chairs today or tomorrow.


    The list of all committees and notes of what needs to happen is here:

    The document that compiles all requested updates is here:


    I think the minor editorial changes can be approved as a group by the committee with an FYI to the board and section leaders. There are several major changes needed, some of which are ready to be reviewed, and a few of which need more work. I think we're ready to move forward with Assessment and Emerging Technology Trends (a Technology Section committee that combines the existing committees). I still need to complete a draft for Web Committee and run it by Kelly and Frank (this will expand the scope of that committee), and we will be combining at least two more committees, maybe 3, between Content/competencies/Communication, but that's pending more discussion.


    I know this is a lot to review! But hopefully you can see fairly easily which items are minor changes and merely need to be noted rather than discussed.

    Just FYI I went through and did some cleanup and reorganization to the document and added links to all the changes, so the document is less terrifying! I had one or two additional submissions from committee chairs, and we may want to hold off on Continuing Education.

    I was mistaken, Kelly and Frank were writing the new Web Committee charge, and just sent it, so I added it to the document.
