Greetings CASWE/ACÉFÉ members.
As our annual conference approaches, I am excited for what looks to be an engaging CASWE/ACÉFÉ program. As you know, CASWE/ACÉFÉ is a small, dynamic association within CSSE. CASWE/ACÉFÉ offers a forum for exposing vital components of contemporary education that are frequently rendered invisible by existing pedagogy, curriculum, philosophy, policy, and school organization. Social justice and equity concerns have been constructed in particular ways with a subtle or even conspicuous avoidance of alternative interpretations. Issues of gender pervade social justice and equity in aspects of existing pedagogy, curriculum, philosophy, policy and school organization.
Based on a system of two-year terms, there are several expected vacancies on the CASWE/ACÉFÉ Executive. I have listed them below. If you are interested in running for any of the vacant positions, please complete the CASWE/ACÉFÉ Executive Nomination form then email the completed form to Lisa Starr firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2016.
DESCRIPTION: The President will work directly with the officers of the association to maintain and advance the mandate of CASWE/ACÉFÉ within the association and with other associations. The President will serve of the Canadian Society for the Study of Education / Société canadienne pour l’étude de l’éducation(CSSE/SCÉÉ) Board of Directors and attend all meetings of the Society. The President in consultation with the Executive Committee will prepare and submit two annual reports to the CSSE/SCÉÉ Board of Directors. The President will chair the Standing Committees for the Conference Proceedings and Awards.
The President-elect will aid the current Executive Committee in any way possible. The President-elect will chair the Standing Committees for Awards. The President elect (chair), President, one Graduate Student Representative and one Member at Large Representative will be responsible for managing nominations as well as the selection of award winners for the Graduate Student awards, Carol Crealock Memorial Award (alternating years) and Achievement Awards.
