MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

May 2018

Dear TLC Section Members,

We are coming to the end of another academic year and hopefully you are excited about attending the AAA Annual Meeting and the TLC breakfast in National Harbor, MD (Washington, DC). There will be multiple teaching, learning and curriculum sessions and multiple panels and paper sessions. This year, Bambi Hora and Shaokun (Carol) Yu are serving as the Annual Meeting TLC Program Co-Chairs. We will provide the TLC schedule in the summer newsletter.

As in prior years, we are recognizing the outgoing officers, the incoming officers, and the 2018 award winners/inductees at the Monday morning TLC breakfast.  If you haven’t already voted, there is still time to vote for the incoming TLC Vice President - Academic. Many thanks to Deloitte, the EY Foundation, and the KPMG Foundation for award sponsorship. Please sign up for the Monday morning TLC breakfast in DC to see the award presentations and to hear from the awardees!

I would like to thank all of the volunteers that help the TLC Section run smoothly. At the Monday morning TLC breakfast in DC a few committee chairs will share their outcomes. There has been great interest by TLC members about the work of the TLC Faculty Development Multiple Choice Test Bank committee chaired by D. Larry Crumbley. Larry will speak for a few minutes.

I want to offer a special thanks to Carol Yacht, who continues to support the TLC section by preparing this newsletter. Carol is a wonderful author, editor, and valuable TLC volunteer. Carol is always looking for ideas and articles to include in the newsletter so please share your thoughts and work with her.

In closing, I offer appreciation to all of you that support TLC Section activities through conference attendance, participation in conference sessions and webinars, volunteering for committees, and volunteering your time to review papers, serve as session facilitators, and serve as paper discussants.
