December Membership Update

Lots happening in preparation for ASTE 2014,

First we welcome our newest board member Cara Heitz to the Board as our interim Anchorage Rep!  It’s going to be great to have her energy and presence in the big city in the next three months and beyond.

And, we welcome our energizer Amanda Duvall in a new role as the Chair of Volunteer Leadership. We hope this new position will evolve into a powerful position for SIG’s, awards, volunteering, etc.  Thanks, Amanda!

Andrew Berkoski our Western Rep has been finalizing the details of our new ASTE app for mobile devices. The new app has lots of fun additions, like leaderboards and badges, and place to put your own profile for networking at the conference!

… Todd Shechter, our personal IT guy for the conference, reports the bandwidth at the Cook will be 3 times faster than last year up to 150 mb based on the Hotels’ upgrade and the nudges/support from Pam Lloyds crew at GCI.  Thanks, Pam!

And finally we are reviewing hundreds of proposals to make this conference offer everything you need to boost your classroom technology. We had an overwhelming response to the Call for Presenters, so with the intense competition this should be our best conference yet!
