December PA-TSA BOD President's Message

December Greetings PA-TSA!!!

Where did the last 4 months go?  It is already late December and the New Year is fast approaching.   I hope everyone is having a great year with their TSA chapters!   A high number of PA chapters have already affiliated with National TSA and hopefully there will be more to come. Pennsylvania has a self-imposed deadline of January 15th.   A chapter needs to have affiliated through the National TSA website to be registered in PA and be eligible to participate in the Regional and State Conferences.

ITEEA Selects Barbato as Executive Director

The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) has announced the selection of Steven A. Barbato as its new Executive Director. Barbato has a long career of excellence in education that includes curriculum development, teaching, educational research and development, elementary leadership, and extensive student organizational experiences. Barbato will leave his Pennsylvania school district to start his duties on January 1, 2013.  Congratulations Steve!

Save the Date

The PA-TSA BOD will meet at the Holiday Inn East Harrisburg on January 19, 2013.  A call for agenda items and an attendance count will be emailed out to BOD members soon.

I hope everyone has a relaxing Holiday break and does well at their regional conferences! 

Thank you all for what you do for our PA-TSA students!
