Dear ASPE Membership,
As we near the close of the year 2013, I can’t help but look forward to 2014 and the challenges that it will bring to this community of educators as a result of the accomplishments of the past year. The publications committee would like to thank the membership, for the opportunity to serve this organization. It is an honor to act as a conduit through which information flows from the hardworking ASPE committees, president, and board of directors to the members. We have enjoyed this past year of collaboration and anticipate new ideas and opportunities that will be brought to the table by incoming committee members and our new president.
The opportunity for ASPE members to pursue growth as a community is represented by the burgeoning attendance and programming at our yearly conference. In the spirit of growth, I encourage you to submit abstracts representing this expansion soon, so that you can actively join the evolution of SP methodology. (Refer to submission link below.)
As you prepare for the end of 2013 and the changes inevitable with the coming of 2014, this quote regarding the impact of change seemed appropriate to share in the final 2013 edition of ASPE News.
“Change has considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.”

All the best,
Valerie Fulmer, Editor- in-Chief, Publications Chair
Abstract Submission Deadline: Monday, January 6, 2014 – 11:59pm CST
