Dear Colleagues:

Last week you received an e-mail from me which consisted of important
information about our Spring 2007 conference. In that welcoming letter,
I concluded by strongly encouraging you to join AHEAD - New England if
you are not currently a member. I'm writing once again to emphasize
that point and encourage you to become involved in this professional

Each spring, AHEAD - New England members participate in the voting
process to nominate and select individuals to the Board of Directors.
Although the spring semester has just begun, the voting process is right
around the corner. The nomination process will begin on Thursday,
February 1st and will continue through Wednesday, March 14th. The
official slate of candidates will be released March 19th for the
AHEAD-New England membership, and the voting will come to a close April
27th before the lunch time break at the Spring Conference. The two open
positions for the 2007-08 academic year are President Elect and

If you are not currently a member of AHEAD - New England, but would like
to join and play an important role in this voting process, I encourage
you to visit our web site at
www.ahead.org/about/regional_affiliates/newengland/index.htm, submit
your membership application, and become involved in this ever growing
professional organization. What are the benefits to joining and
becoming part of the Board of Directors? It offers endless
opportunities to fine tune your skills in collaborating with other
professionals throughout New England, play a key role in the development
of conferences and workshops, and provide your unique perspective as you
help expand the services and resources available for colleagues
throughout the region. If you've been a member in the past but have not
renewed your membership for the 2006-2007 year, I encourage you to do so
as soon as possible so you can participate in the voting process once

At any time, if you have questions about this nomination and voting
process, or about our organization, I encourage you to contact myself or
any of the Board members. Best of luck with the beginning of your
Spring semester!


Chip Kennedy

President, AHEAD - New England
