Dear Volunteer Leaders,

Welcome returning SIG leaders and new committee members. We can't wait until ISTE2013! In addition to the new ideas, energy, and community the conference provides, it also marks the start of this year's SIG leadership term. Whether you are a SIG president or general committee member, your time, efforts, and passion matters greatly to ISTE, so thank you.

This short presentation is meant to welcome you to a fabulous group of leadership within the field of ed-tech and share a glimpse of what we hope to accomplish this year within the SIG program. We are striving to align leadership, encourage cross-collaboration, clarify communication, and support your innovative ideas from the field. We look forward to working with you this year!

The general committee members make up the rest of the committee. In collaboration with the leadership team, these volunteers help with the work of building community, creating SIG benefits, producing learning resources, communicating important information, and planning conference activities. Their tasks may be small or large, ongoing or occasional. The leadership team creates subcommittees and task groups as needed, and staffs them with these volunteers. Each of these volunteers serves one-year terms.

events and project due dates!

Hmm. That might work.
But this might too....
I'll share my ideas
in the survey

Supporting Innovation
ISTE relies on you as the leaders in the field
of ed-tech to share the latest news and
resources with our membership. We also
know you are motivated, innovative, and
creative thinkers and doers!

We hope to support these ideas by
encouraging collaboration and facilitating
communication between SIG Leadership.

Speaking of innovation.....

However you're getting to San Antonio - plane, car, bike, or remotely through AccessISTE - we hope the energy of the conference brings excitement for the next term of
SIG activity.

We can't wait to see the SIGs shining in action!

Post-San Antonio, we will invite you to attend a leadership webinar where we will roll out some SIG program enhancements that we hope will make your SIG even more successful. We have some great ideas brewing, but we need your feedback too!
Please share your thoughts and ideas with us.

We're concentrating on...
Optional Leadership Roles
Subcommittee chairs can be appointed as necessary
This is what we're working on here at ISTE...
You might be thinking...
After the conference, we will use this information to create our leadership webinar. We will schedule a few sessions throughout the summer to hopefully accommodate summer schedules!
Please complete this survey by July 16, 2013.
