First of all I would like to express my appreciation to Jim Hannon for his leadership as president of the Flint Hills Chapter of PDK. It is not easy to “lead” a bunch of educators but he did an excellent job. While we had hoped he might serve as president for a second year, he has decided that is not possible and I have agreed to serve as president for 2009-2010. The complete list of officers for the year is included in this newsletter.
The executive council is working on programs for the year and you will find information about those later in this newsletter. We have not finalized all programs and we would like very much to plan something of interest to the membership so please share any ideas you have with Mirah Dow (firstname.lastname@example.org), Vice President for Programs or me (email@example.com).
For future newsletters we would like very much to include more information about what members are doing. Please e-mail information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a web page (http://www.emporia.edu/teach/PDK/index2.html) and are updating it with current information.
We greatly appreciate your support of the Flint Hills Chapter and hope to see each of you at the meetings. I wish you all a happy and productive year.
Phil Bennett, President
Flint Hills Chapter of PDK
