Note this announcement from yesterday.

Dear Michael Barbour,

Hi everyone!

We hope this email finds you well in the new year! We just wanted to give you a heads up that I (Kathryn) will be ending my term as co-chair of the SITE K-12 Online Learning SIG at the end of SITE 2017, so Jered will be looking for a new partner-in-crime very soon! Elections will be held during our SIG meeting at the SITE 2017 Conference, so please note that you have to be present at the SIG meeting to be considered. If you have interest, let us know! More information about the election process will be coming soon from AACE Leadership, but until then, just let us know if you have interest and/or any questions!

Thanks, and enjoy your day!
