And don’t forget to read our monthly e-newsletter The Leader for important news and helpful materials to make your chapter stronger.

Feel free to call or email anytime. I look forward to working with you!

Are your members up to date with their national and local dues?
While recruiting exceptional members is critical, we also want to retain these members as they graduate and transition into their careers.

You may have already seen emails from your Regional Chapter Coordinator identifying lapsed members in your chapter. Please consider using the resources provided in the email to get in touch with these students. With brand-new resources like the Educator Learning Network and E-Portfolio, a KDP membership has never been more valuable. If you would like more information or a list of your chapter’s lapsed members, don’t hesitate to reach out to your Regional Chapter Coordinator.

Free E-Portfolios for Your Students (and You)
You may have heard about KDP’s new Educator Learning Network and the opportunity for every KDP member to get a free e-portfolio. This is a great way for students to document their work as they prepare to enter the workforce. E-portfolios are the digital equivalent of a résumé but have the flexibility for video, documents, badges, photos, and more to highlight the person’s skills and experience. Encourage your members to take full advantage of this service.
