ECOO Board of Directors Meeting – April 4, 2016

The ECOO Board of Directors met online in Adobe Connect on April 4, 2016,   at 9:00 p.m.

The meeting was attended by Mark Carbone, Donna Fry, Harry Niezen, Jaclyn Calder, Mark Chesser, Jeff Weir, and Zoe Branigan-Pipe

Thank you to Zoe and Jaclyn for their work in setting up ECOO StoryBytes.  We encourage educators to tell their stories and share their work with others across the province.  Details can be found here: http://ecoo.org/blog/2016/03/30/ecoo-storybytes/

The membership site is up and running on the website.  This enables people who cannot attend the conference to be members of ECOO.

We are searching for an Elections Officer for ECOO.  A motion was passed to subsidize the Elections Officer to attend the BIT16 conference to fulfill his/her duties.  A posting for interested ECOO members will be up on the website in April.

Thank you to the BIT16 Conference Committee Chair Harry Niezen for the update to the Board of Directors.  Over 300 presentation proposals were received for BIT16 and the process of finding the best learning opportunities for our members is now underway.

The Board of Directors will meet again on May 2, 2016 at 9:00 p.m.
