The USEA Board of Governors has been examining issues surrounding the size and shape of the Areas, what kind of program membership options may be possible and how national policies may impact local practices. Membership feedback is crucial to determining what kinds of changes should be made, if any. Please join us to discuss the ideas being considered and to share your thoughts. The discussion will be led by Katherine Cooper, who chaired a recent Task Force on Area Alignment issues and Mark Hart, chair of the Membership Committee.
The open forum will take place on Thursday, December 3rd from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention.
