November 2017 Communiqué



Aline Germain-Rutherford elected as 3M Council Vice-Chair. STLHE requires that we have Executive officers: Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary-Treasurer. Here’s a brief explanation of how we elect the officers. Members of the 3M Council Executive are elected as members-at-large in a vote from all the 3M National Teaching and Learning Fellows. The Executive’s members-at-large elect the officers from amongst themselves and at our Executive meeting in Halifax in June, Aline Germain-Rutherford was voted in as Vice Chair. Congratulations Aline. Too learn more about your 3M Council Executive use this link.

Volunteers needed. The Council relies heavily on the 3M Fellows to give a hand as volunteers for a number of initiatives. Currently we are looking for people to help with the following initiatives: Welcome to my classroom submission reviews (Jon Houseman), 3M National Student Fellowship Nominations (Maureen Connolly), and 3M National Teaching Fellowship retreat facilitators (Shannon Murray). The success of the Council’s various initiatives depends on participation of the Fellows. Use the links to contact the various coordinators; they’ll all be happy to answer any questions you may have and explain what being a volunteer entails.

Update your Wild Apricot membership profile. The Wild Apricot software is used by STLHE for all its mailings to members and the 3M Council uses the same database to contact 3M Fellows. Many of us have life-time memberships and as a result of not paying annual dues we don’t get the chance to update our contact information each year. In the next few weeks the Council and Society will be sending out emails about the various events; including the 2018 STLHE Conference. Clearly, if you received this, your email information is accurate. But, maybe you have a newer email address that you use more often, or there may have been changes in other contact information since your profile was first entered in the database. Use this link to confirm and make changes to your membership profile.

3M Fellows at STLHE 2017. Each year the Council takes photos of the Council’s events at the STLHE Annual Conference. These are published on the 3M Council’s website in the photo galleries section. The gallery for STLHE 2017 has just been published. Use this link to reminisce about our time in Halifax or any of the previous STLHE Annual conferences: 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2011.
