A Few Important Announcements:
There are now two addresses that will take visitors to our CSFE site: csfeonline.org and a new address — socialfoundations.org Please share either of these links with those who might be interested in learning about the Standards and other Council work.
If you would like to support the work of the Council, please consider joining as an individual (sustaining) member. The cost is minimal ($10). Membership forms are available for download through the “Membership” page to the right. For leaders of social foundations organizations, this would be an ideal time to submit membership dues as well. See membership forms for details.
This year, the CASA committee of AESA has been reviewing and drafting proposed revisions of the CLSE/AESA Standards. We will try to get the word out as opportunities for comment become available.
And finally, it is time for us to elect new CSFE officers. In the near future, I will appoint a nominations committee to prepare a slate of candidates for those whose terms of office have expired. We will also be working to identify current voting members (member organization delegates) in order to hold a proper online election. A call for nominations will be posted here, and on the AESA listserve soon.
Jan Armstrong, CSFE President
