CASLT - Board of Director Notes - February 2003
Ongoing Projects - As explained in the last issue of Réflexions, the Board is engaged in three large scale projects. The CASLT Chez Vous initiative involves one day professional development opportunities in partnership with provincial groups. We are now planning for summer and Fall 2003, so if you have an interest in hosting a CCV, please contact the Head Office. The second project, year two of the High School Proficiency Test is in good hands since the hiring of Project Manager, Dr. Alina MacFarlane in October. We will begin to publish some of the information gathered in the next issue of Réflexions and on our web site. The Board met for a third Strategic Planning meeting in late September and is continuing the process in February.
Valerie Kamel (Quebec) has decided to step down from the Board to focus on her academic studies but continues as National Council Representative for that province. Miles Turnbull moved from Ontario to PEI which created a vacancy for National Council Representative for Ontario. He was acclaimed as National Council Representative for PEI. And later was named to the Board of Directors once again (after a three month absence).
There where two names put forward for National Council Representative for Ontario. Dr. Marie Myers, professor at the Faculty of Education, Queen's University and Rhéal Allain, seconded professor at the Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa. This is the first time an election has been held for this position and the Board would like to thank both candidates for their interest in sharing their expertise with the Association. Ballots were sent out to all members of the Association residing in Ontario in early January and the deadline was January 31st to vote. Since the death of Lilly Borges Oldham, the position of National Council Representative for NWT remains vacant.
