“Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness you are able to give.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt
Your building reps will be running an SEA Election this Wednesday, December 12th. Please be sure to stop by your lounges or wherever your election will be taking place in order to vote for the representatives we will be sending to the IEA-Representative Assembly in April. We will also be voting for new members to our Region 35 Council.
If you are interested in any of these positions, feel free to be a write-in on the ballots. For any questions about the election, contact your building reps or our Elections Chair, Kelly O’Reilly at the RAC.
We still have openings for our free SPARKS conference on January 18th-19th. This is an event to any SEA or SEEO member having 10 years or less of work experience. This conference is a fun, spirited learning experience targeted toward newer emerging voices in our associations. Included with your registration is a one-night hotel stay at the Wingate by Wyndham in Schaumburg, Friday night dinner and Escape Room event, and Saturday breakfast, lunch, and various sessions and professional development. For more information or to register, here is a link to the SPARKS flyer. Please register by December 21st.
