A Message from our President


Hello Everyone!

It’s hard to believe that this is my final “greeting” as the President of CAL-ED.    I will be passing the gavel on to our current President-Elect, Stephanie Johnson during the General Meeting which will be held at during our annual conference in March.

And, speaking of conferences … the CAL-ED Board is working hard to plan an exciting conference to be held in Long Beach from March 6th – March 8th, at the beautiful Long Beach Marriott.  This year’s theme, “Making a Difference in Schools” is fitting for the location of the conference.    YOU can help make a difference, too!   If you, or any of your colleagues have some exciting things to share with other professionals, encourage them to share their information at the conference by submitting a workshop proposal in the Call for Papers.  The deadline of October 31st is firm.

We would also like to recognize individuals in our field who have gone above and beyond!   If you would like to nominate someone for an award at this years’ Awards Luncheon, submit a nomination form no later than January 14, 2015.   The list of Awards, the criteria and nomination form can be found on the CAL-ED website.

I look forward to seeing you in Long Beach in March!

Let’s make a difference in our schools!

Patty Ivankovic

CAL-Ed President
