Dear Kathy… as so many of you would say—and it’s not just a greeting on an email! Kathy Slupik is indeed near and dear to your hearts, and even more so as she retired on December 31. How we will miss her! With her help, LEA staff is putting together all the loose ends we need to close as she and husband Pat transition to retired life in Wisconsin. We would appreciate your help too. As of January 1, please direct all email to lea@lea.org that you would normally send to Kathy—including any farewell greetings. (We’ll collect them, and present them to Kathy at her retirement celebration in February.)

Network leadership teams phase out; network task forces phase in. Network leadership teams served for many years as advisors and workers for respective listservs, vetting nominees for awards, helping with the convocation, and the like. LEA is grateful for their service, which was tied to 3-year terms. Various task forces will replace leadership teams and they will focus on completing a project or initiative within a specified time frame. For example, vetting nominees for the 2020 awards will be completed in two weeks’ time by the 2020 Awards Selection Task Force, composed of participants in EncourAGEnet. Several task forces are in planning stages for special projects identified with specific network interest areas.
