Preview: Affiliate Leaders Conference in Philly, August 15-17

Next weekend is the NCTM Affiliate group leaders conference and I'm planning to attend. I hope to find out more about the Board's decision concerning the resolution adopted in Salt Lake City and get a sneak peak at what's in the future for NCTM and technology. II’ll update you as soon as I find out. As you may know Jim Rubillo NCTM’s executive director is planning to retire a year from now. Skip Fennell is heading up a search committee for a new executive director. Hopefully, the new person will be able to champion technology more as we continue our journey through the 21st century. BTW - NCTM sent me a copy of "Our Iceberg is Melting: Changing and Succeeding under Any Conditions" by John Kotter to read in advance of the conference. It's a fable about penguins surviving on an iceberg. Could major change be in the air? Let me know if there is anything you want me to find out from the head honchos at NCTM.
