a. Introductions and attendance—welcome Cheryl Sjostrom, Brandman University, Ontario, CA
a. report from TED meeting
a. Amend Constitution to add Student Representative Motion from Barbara
Wert, seconded by Cheryl Sjostrom, to amend Constitution to add the Student
Representative position. Patrice will post the revised Constitution via Google
Groups, and no comment/suggestions by the membership before May 1st will be considered a vote of acceptance of the new Constitution. b. Terms of office (how to stagger terms) Patrice reported that she talked with Carol Long of the Paraeducator SIG about how their SIG conducts elections. Carol explained that the Paraeducator SIG does not have formal elections because all of the offices are served voluntarily—not elected (which is also stated in the Early Childhood SIG constitution). They decide by consensus on a year-to-year basis who will voluntarily serve in the positions. c. Slate of Officers for Nov election Based on the above information, the EC SIG members decided to keep the current slate of officers from year-to-year, if members desire to continue, until someone else expresses an interest in volunteering for any office.
a. Communication – use of Google Groups and Adobe Connect Members discussed the use of both tech tools for communication. Google seems to work for the dissemination of SIG information. Adobe Connect will only work if we have a wireless Internet connection in our meeting room—something to think about next time. b. Membership – ad hoc “membership” representative Should we consider adding a “membership” representative or have that assumed by the Student Representative? For now, the student rep seems to generate the most membership interest.
