From the President
Welcome back from a hopefully restful and enjoyable winter break. We are looking forward to the five spring conferences that will take place in April. Conference planning continues to be underway and regions have created wonderful programs to encourage new and continued participation in their conferences.
Unfortunately this past fall due to the damage and havoc caused by hurricane Sandy the Eastern Fall 2012 conference was canceled. All affected by this unexpected and catastrophic event remain in our thoughts and prayers. The 2013 Fall Eastern conference will include some of the planned presentations from this year's canceled event. Huge thanks to the host of the canceled event, Vincent Cicirello of Richard Stockton College, for his professional handling of the unexpected storm situation. The Consortium continues to be fortunate to have dedicated faculty who strive for excellence and cooperation in the face of adversity. Thank you to all who were available for assistance during this challenging time.
With the Spring conferences around the corner comes another year for elections of regional representatives to the Consortium's National Board. Regional representatives serve a three year term. This year elections will be held for representatives in the following regions: Midsouth, Northeastern, Rocky Mountain, and Central Plains (to fill the remaining term of Vice-President Scott Sigman through 2014).
This spring the National Board meeting will be held from 7-11pm on Wednesday,
March 6, 2013 in Denver, Colorado at the Sheraton Denver Downtown, Director's Row F, in conjunction with the annual SIGCSE conference. The Annual Business Meeting of the Consortium will take place on Friday, March 8, 2013 at 6pm at the Sheraton Denver Downtown. All members are welcome to attend and participate in this meeting. If you have items that you would like to have placed on the agenda, please contact me or your regional representative with the request.
The Board continues to try to find ways to improve
on-line registration through conftool and will pursue other avenues
for the Consortium to provide this service in the coming
months. Please visit http://www.ccsc.org/regions/regions.htm to register for any of the spring conferences and to learn more about any of the regions. We encourage everyone to participate in any regional conference through paper submissions, paper reviewing, and conference participation.
For members who were unable to attend a regional conference this past fall we invite you to renew your membership on-line via Membership Renewal found at the Membership tab on this website. By renewing you will continue to receive the CCSC journal and home regional mailings.
On behalf of the Board we are looking forward to the 2013 Spring conferences and hope to see increased participation in the Consortium.
