Dear Colleagues,

On January 22, we had a very productive conversation via webinar, during which we shared upcoming changes to a smaller, competency-based board with three-year terms to better represent our diverse ISTE community. We also shared future alternatives to seating the board through elections and appointments after the 2013 election.

We invite you to view the webinar archive. If you are interested in sharing additional thoughts and recommendations with ISTE board representatives, please do so at We value your feedback.

Thank you for taking advantage of the opportunity to broaden your understanding of the upcoming changes and provide feedback on possible changes in the future. Your insight will be shared with the full board next month. We continue to be impressed by the level of experience and involvement that so many of you bring to ISTE. We are grateful for the work you do to provide students at all levels with digital-age educational opportunities. 

Again, thank you for participating in the ISTE Board's Linkage efforts. It is through these activities that ISTE’s board and members can have a strong ongoing dialogue that supports continuous improvement for our association.
