We have two organizing members whose respective terms on the VHEAP organizing committee are ending June 2022. On behalf of the entire organization, I’d like to thank Valerie Schoolcraft (JMU) and Beth Ann Dickie (ODU) whose insight, leadership and continuous support were pivotal in shaping the direction of VHEAP from inception in 2018.
Over the next month, we will be accepting nominations for two open seats on the VHEAP Organizing Committee. These positions will have a three-year term, starting July 1, 2022 and ending June 30, 2025. Nominations will close at 5:00pm (ET) on Wednesday, May 25, 2022. Once nominations are collected, ballots will be sent to VHEAP membership on or around May 27th, 2022 with voting closing on June 22, 2022. Results will be announced on or around June 26, 2022. To nominate yourself or a colleague, complete the nomination form at your earliest convenience.
This is an opportunity for you to help shape the direction of our organization and have a voice in accessibility efforts across the state. As a reminder, our organization looks at accessibility from a holistic perspective – addressing the built, digital, and attitudinal environments and include higher education, K-12, and state agency perspectives. It is our goal to have our Organizing Committee reflect all of these viewpoints.
