Recently, with the news that our incoming President was forced to step aside for health reasons, the ColoDLA Board of Directors asked me to serve as Interim President. I accepted, knowing that there are other fine potential candidates who are eligible to run for election, waiting in the wings.
We all owe a huge debt of gratitude to Duncan McBogg, who served a full term as President and did a fantastic job! His leadership will be missed.
It’s our intention to hold elections in the coming weeks and we hope that you will consider taking on a role in leading this organization, going forward. We have seats on the Board of Directors and openings for Officers that include
- Vice President (also ‘President-in-waiting’)
- Communications and Technology Director (Board Member)
- Higher Ed Representative (Board Member)
- At Large Representatives (Board Member)
- Committee Chairs (example: elections, sponsorship, outreach, new member orientation, conference, professional development, social, strategy)
For those interested, a Board Member can expect to contribute between two and four hours per month, on average, with Officers shouldering a steeper share.
Please contact me to indicate your interest or ask questions. Be sure to share a bio, your name, a photo and contact information. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please indicate your interests and if you have other suggestions for leadership, make these by August 26. The upcoming year for our Colorado Distance Learning Association promises to be filled with opportunities for growth, both as an organization, and as professionals. This is an opportunity for you to help shape the vision for our Association; imagination, dedication and energy are welcome and encouraged!
Your contributions will define the role ColoDLA can play, in the coming months.
Thank you for your membership and continued interest in ColoDLA.
Interim President, Colorado Distance Learning Association
