Message From the President

Posted by: Margaret Eggleston, AAACE President
The wheels are spinning at AAACE, with your leadership team, SIG leaders, and commission directors. They are moving full speed ahead. Over the past six months, we hosted numerous webinars, completed the proposal review process for conference presentations in November, formed partnerships with several mutually-beneficial organizations, and enhanced member benefits. You can read more about these happenings in this newsletter, or as posted to our website. Speaking of the aaace website, it was totally retooled. I hope you checked out all the new features, if not, you may want to take a look! As a member, you have access to lots of areas that are closed to the general public, and there are more enhancements to come.
For anyone interested in the latest statistics and information about education, I recommend downloading a copy of The Condition of Education 2016. It was released on May 26 by the Acting Commissioner of National Center For Education Statistics, Peggy G. Carr.. “The indicators presented in The Condition of Education 2016 provides an update on the state of education in America and includes findings on the demographics of American schools, U.S. resources for schooling, and outcomes associated with education” (IES News Flash, personal communication,May 26, 2016). Additional source material to enhance a paper, article, or presentation can be found on our very own AAACE website, and via this link.
Well, that’s all for now. Be sure to catch the early bird registration rate for our conference in November. I’ll see you there!
