ASCD Professional Interest Communities are member-initiated groups designed to unite people around a common area of interest in the field of education. These communities are based on the needs of its participants and operate independently in providing different resources to its members. Most communities produce a newsletter, conduct a workshop at ASCD's Annual Conference, and provide information and resources to community members. This group is a gathering place for facilitators of the Professional Interest Communities, where experiences and knowledge are shared.

Walter_McKenzie, 3 years ago| FlagGood Tuesday afternoon to our esteemed Professional Interest Community leaders!
Thanks to all who responded to my request for feedback on our next meeting time. Our next Professional Interest Community live online meeting will be at 1:00 PM EDT on Wednesday, September 29, 2010. We will work on developing the criteria for identifying a thriving Professional Interest Community at this meeting, so please attend if you can.
All of ASCD’s affiliates and communities have a unique relationship with the parent organization. While you are closely affiliated with ASCD, you are each separate, distinct entities and independent organizations in your own right. Our common bond is our vision for children and education, and we have a mutually beneficial relationship: ASCD benefits from your excellent subject matter expertise and you benefit from access to ASCD’s excellent programs and services. Much like you, ASCD is adapting to new ways of learning, teaching and leading in the 21st century. Why change? ASCD is a longstanding, well-respected professional association that is known for its quality work! Absolutely - this is why I am so proud to have joined the ASCD team. But the signs are all around us that the world is changing, and that organizations that flourished in the 20th century need to evolve to continue to make a difference in the 21st century. Change is impacting all of us, from the ways we think of ourselves internally to the ways we communicate and conference externally. It is a challenging time, but with challenge comes opportunity!
This afternoon we will issue notifications of funding for those Professional Interest Communities who made requests. While we could not fully fund every request, I am glad to report that everyone who made a request is receiving funding. Moving forward, we will discuss options and strategies for promoting your own sustained revenue streams.
Looking forward to our meeting on the 29th – and don’t forget the online ASCD EDge training at 1 PM on October 1st too.
Have a good rest of the week!
Douglas_Schermer, 3 years ago| FlagWalter -- I viewed the archive of the Aug 27 PIC Facilitato
rs meeting. That is a good way for people who cannot attend live. I agree with others -- the article, the questions, and the use of technology are spot on. It appears the meetings magically appear in my Outlook calendar - which is just fine by me except I wish I understood how you do that. My hunch is that I will be catching the Oct 1 archive. I am interested in the EDGE functions so if you have handouts and articles, can you make them magically appear in my in box? I am glad to hear that there will be regular online meetings as well as a meeting in San Francisco.
As for the content expertise issue at the beginning of the meeting, there are many experts in the field of Global Education who can help, although they may not be members of the PIC. We can find them.
