1/11/2011 Update from Section Rep

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).

Some Notes:

     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

    2.Award Nominations / Section Reports are due January 21, 2010.  More information can be found here.

    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!!)
