Dear SPE Members:
Hope this finds everyone well and in good spirits! It is time to vote for our next set of SPE Board Members (3-year term, 2018-2020). Our five candidates are vying for three spots with as I said a 3-year term. The bio sketches and a ballot are attached.
I’m also attaching a current listing of Society Officers and Board Members, just so you can see who’s in charge of what. We also have a finalized program for our annual meeting at AERA attached.
Here’s the basic information:
Meeting: Society of Professors of Education Annual Meeting
Date: Saturday, April 14, 2018 Time: 8:00am – 5:00pm
Hotel: Sheraton New York Times Square
Room: Sheraton NY Ballroom West
For a second year in a row a “special thanks” goes out to Dan Tanner and his Foundation for contributing $1,000.00 in the form of a grant to cover the room rental for our annual meeting and rental incidentals. Dan and the Foundation’s trustees which is made up of Peter Hlebowitsh, Dennis Buss, James Hayden, William Wraga and Lloyd Chilton). Thanks Dan and trustees for the grant and continuing to be good friends to the Society.
You will notice on the membership renewal form (also attached) that you can now pay through PayPal. I’m not great at it, but it is working. Since everyone has to make a choice in dues payments, and I need to keep up-to-date membership information. I’m asking that you send me, through email, a completed renewal form indicating how much I need to be billed through PayPal. I will then send you an invoice to your email address and you can pay with credit card. I fought it for a few years, but now I’m into it! Of course you can still send me a check via U.S. mail—that still works fine with me.
Finally, I’m working to up-date the master listing, so this first round of emails is not as up-to-date as I want it to be. But my next one in a few days will contain a listing of all members and their most recent dues payment.
