A Message From the CUE Board of Directors

From yesterday’s inbox…

A Message from the CUE Board of Directors

Fellow CUE Members,

It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors says goodbye to Mike Lawrence, Chief Executive Officer of CUE, effective August 31, 2017.

Mike announced his departure to CUE volunteer leaders on Friday at the Leadership Development Institute in Pacific Grove, CA. Since 2005, Mike has played a critical role in the development and success of the organization, and while we will miss him and his inspiring leadership, we wish him the best in his new endeavors. We want to thank him for the nearly 13 years of dedicated service which involved many significant accomplishments, including:

  • Growing membership to over 10,000 members across 2 states

  • Supporting the creation or reboot of 12 Affiliates and 5 Learning Networks

  • Re-establishing the Fall Conference in American Canyon

  • Diversifying revenue and growing the organization’s reserves

  • Partnering with organizations like iNACOL, ACSA, CETPA and many others to spread CUE’s message and outreach into new territory

  • Moving CUE to a paperless workflow

  • Supporting the creation of several innovative professional development programs, including the Leading Edge Certification and CUE Rock Star Camps.

Over the next several months, we will be conducting a search to find CUE’s new Executive Director. During this transition period, it is our priority to find the best leader for CUE, while maintaining a stable and effective organization. We will share the job announcement soon and ask for your help in identifying candidates who can help CUE continue to be successful in the future.

To lead CUE in the interim and ensure a smooth transition while the search for a new Executive Director is underway, the Board has appointed Chief Innovation Officer Jon Corippo to serve as Interim Executive Director. As a long-time CUE member, Lead Learner, former Assistant Superintendent and CUE Chief Innovation Officer, Jon’s experience and connection to CUE will provide continuity and support during the transition.

Again, we cannot thank Mike enough for the dedication, passion, enthusiasm and motivation he has given CUE over the past 13 years. He will be greatly missed by the staff, Board, members and partners alike. We look forward to following the success of his career and are hopeful and excited for the next chapter of CUE as we continue to support our community of members and our mission. If you have any questions or concerns during this transition process, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Board (
