From: Scott Walker – 2011 KSYITE Representative to SDITE
Overview: As the elected Section Representative of the Kentucky Section to the Southern District of ITE, I have the responsibility of communicating the activities and concerns of KYSITE to SDITE as well as information from the KYSITE Board of the activities and concerns of SDITE. I recently attended the Year End Board Meeting in Lexington (December 5 / 6).
1.Please plan to attend SDITE Future Annual Meetings:
a. 2011: Lafayette, LA – April 10 – 13
b. *******2012: Lexington, KY – April 15 – 18*******
c. 2013: Charlotte, NC
3.SDITE Budget / Review: The SDITE Board is closely monitoring their operating budget. Much of this is attributed to two key initiatives within the District:
a.Traffic Bowl: The Traffic Bowl is a relatively high part of the budget for SDITE. This includes prizes (2nd and 3rd place), travel reimbursements to 8 / 9 schools each year, and now the cost to send a winning team to ITE Annual Meeting for competition.
b.Leadership Training: SDITE has developed a Leadership Training Course that has been quite well-received. However, substantial annual costs have been incurred to roll this out to various Sections.
4.Strategic Plan Updates: Bill Seymour is completing his 3 year term as Chair of Strategic Plan Committee (Great job Bill!!)
