Welcome — A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
Dear TLC Section Members:
The bylaw change proposals and dues increase passed! Thanks to all members who voted. You will have another ballot opportunity this spring when you vote for new TLC officers. Many thanks to TLC's Nominating Committee chaired by Dale L. Flesher (University of Mississippi) and comprised of Robert D. Allen (University of Utah), Timothy Cairney (Georgia Southern University), Martha Doran (San Diego State University), Michael J. Meyer (University of Notre Dame), and Susan L. Swanger (Western Carolina University) for offering us quality choices to lead TLC in the future.
Regional meetings are in full swing and TLC enjoys playing an ongoing part of these meetings by not only hosting an ice cream afternoon break at each meeting but sponsoring regional best teaching paper awards through the generous funding of the Ernst and Young Foundation. So think about submitting a paper to your regional meeting's TLC peer review process for consideration. Or, volunteer to be a peer reviewer, our TLC regional representatives need your help.
TLC will be offering several webinars on a variety of topics this year. Our first on Professional Judgment was attended by more than 100 members!Â Many thanks to E&Y for sharing their expertise. The webinar is archived by AAA for your viewing. If you have a webinar idea or want to present, please contact David Cottrell at BYU, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you are planning to attend the Annual Meeting in Anaheim CA in August. We will be holding our Annual TLC Breakfast on the morning of Monday, August 5th. The TLC Section will also be hosting the 4th Annual WOW Event. It will be a HOME RUN of an event at the Anaheim Angels Stadium, complete with a game between the Angels and Texas Rangers, baseball themed food and beverages, CPE, and transportation. The affordable cost of $60 per person is once again possible due to the generous sponsorship of KPMG. The WOW Event will be held on the evening of Tuesday, August 6th during the AAA Annual Meeting. As in prior years, both the Breakfast and WOW2013 are ticketed events. Watch for details as you sign up for the Annual Meeting. Also please thank Tracie Nobles (Texas State University-San Marcos) and her team of reviewers for doing such a great job peer-reviewing and offering us a diverse and interesting variety of TLC paper and panel sessions.
And finally, thanks so much for your membership and all you do to support the activities of the TLC Section! I look forward to seeing many of you this spring at Regional Meetings and later this summer at the AAA Annual Meeting.
TLC Section President
