2) This in from Janet Williams

Hi, everyone.  Happy Holidays from your KCALDD Vice President, Janet L. Williams.  It’s almost time for finals so hang in there! 

As President Micaela Ayers mentioned in last week’s e-mail, Mr. John Sheridan has recently resigned his post as Chair of Instructional Initiatives so his position needs to be filled as soon as possible.

Is there anyone who is already on the committee who is willing to step up and take his place?  It would be so much easier for someone who is already familiar with the work of the committee to move into John’s place.  Do we have any volunteers or nominations?  If so, let me know by this Friday, Dec. 11, 2015.  Otherwise we will open the position to the rest of the group next week.

Sincerely,

Janet L. Williams

In view of lack of agenda items, I’d like to cancel next week’s planned meeting in Manhattan for KCALDD.  I’d like to encourage those of you on committees to use the time to meet either physically or virtually to make progress on their work.

If you haven’t yet voted for the bylaws changes (see previous email for details), please do so at the link previously sent.

Thank you, and enjoy the gift of time this holiday season.

Micaela
