Art education is a critical part of our nation’s enduring cultural fiber. As Vice-Chair, I hope to support our section by strengthening our collective voice in this challenging and changing educational climate. It is my hope is that we provide relevant skills and knowledge through training opportunities to our sections membership. Personally, I plan to act as an advocate to assist and support our section and those we serve through our work. As a member of several other small round tables and sections, I am sensitive to the issues that impact our field and the importance of outreach to work with other sections. An area of challenge and opportunity is recruiting and retaining members to strengthen our voice for the support of art education in the evolving educational landscape today. I will work with other Section leaders and Art Section members to develop innovative and creative programs that will assist us career innovation and outreach to our colleagues at our institutions.
