Your Turn

from CASE

It is that time of year for you to have "your turn." Every year in February, the CASE elections are held. This year it is your opportunity to do your part for the organization and vote based on your convictions for President Elect and Treasurer. As always we have great candidates — Gary Myrah (WI) for President Elect and for Treasurer Chris Horton (GA) and Carrie Turner (MO). If you are a current member of CASE as of February 17, 2014 and provided CEC with your email address, you will receive an email with a link to the candidate information and a link to vote. You can find the candidate information now on the CASE website but you can only vote from your link in your email. The email should arrive today or at the latest on Tuesday. If you have not received your email by Tuesday afternoon, email me so I can check on the problem. If you know of CASE members who do not get emails, they can contact the CASE office and receive a paper ballot. The election will only be open through Saturday March 15 so don't put it off. Take your turn and be an engaged and informed member! The election results will be announced at the Annual CASE Member/Board meeting at the CEC convention, Wednesday April 9. I hope you are making your plans to attend the CEC Convention and if so, that you are planning to arrive early enough to have breakfast and attend the CASE meeting. Watch for more details in the coming weeks — see below for the CASE Night tickets!

Even though the 3rd Annual CASE Hybrid conference is starting today, it is not too late for you to join in or to purchase the CD ROM. As a virtual site, you can download the handouts and connect into the live presentations immediately upon your registration. You can also purchase by the day. If you have any questions about the implementation of the Common Core State Standards and the Assessments, then you surely need to sign up for Tuesday! If you are one of our virtual sites, you should have received several emails with details on downloading the handouts and signing on. As a reminder, if you have any difficulties logging into the webcast, contact Peach New Media at 866-702-3278. Be sure to join the discussion on the CASE Facebook page and/or on Twitter @casecec #2014CASE

Speaking of attending CEC, CASE Night is going to be a great event as always this year! Just think, heading out to the ballpark with 174 of your colleagues on Thursday, April 10, 2014 for food and a great ballgame! We will have appetizers, dinner, cash bar and lots of fun at a pregame tent party at the Citizens' Bank Park and then we will be sitting together for the Phillies vs. Brewers game! Click here for the flyer and click here to purchase your tickets! CASE NIGHT sells out almost every year ... don't delay on getting your ticket! See you in Philadelphia!

Coming soon ... CASE is always trying to improve our services to members. Just in time for the spring job search, CASE will be adding a career center to our website. This will be especially great for our members looking for administrative positions and districts looking for the right match for their vacancies. This service will have a fee attached to it for the districts but we believe you will think it is very reasonable and we believe this will be a site that provides a service to both our members looking for positions and our members looking for personnel! Watch for more details!
