2013 Affiliate Leaders Conference: Leadership in an iPad World

As most of you may know CLIME is an affiliate group of NCTM. Each summer NCTM holds a special conference for affiliate group leaders. I have attended such a conference before so I was not particularly inclined to attend this one until I noticed that the theme for the conference is: "Leadership: Building Responsive Affiliates in an iPad World." Since CLIME has been promoting Math 2.0 in this blog since 2009, I decided I couldn't pass up this opportunity to participate in this conference. Here's the bulleted list of outcomes for this 3 day (2 night) conference in Annapolis, MD:

  • learn and share about effective use of social media and new technology to advance your Affiliate’s goals; 
  • develop strategies for strengthening your Affiliate’s leadership role and advocating for mathematics education; 
  • identify ways of addressing equity in Affiliate activities and organizations; 
  • learn about the NCTM structure, resources, and initiatives and participate in discussions with NCTM President Linda Gojak; 
  • and develop or revisit the strategic plan for your Affiliate by integrating ideas gathered through discussion with other Affiliate leaders.

If anyone is interested in joining me (I'd love it) for this conference and/or is interested in learning more (personally from me) about CLIME and NCTM's affiliate program, please let me know at ihor@clime.org.
