Elementary Section Steering Committee - Previous Revision

Responsibilities & Activities

The Elementary Section Steering Committee is responsible for the governance of NCTE's Elementary Section and guides the affairs of the Section.  All Steering Committee members serve four-year terms.  The Chair of the Elementary Section Steering Committee is automatically a voting member of the NCTE Executive Committee.

Time Commitment:  Steering Committee members typically meet at the NCTE Annual Convention for several hours on Thursday afternoon and for a full day on the Monday. No other face-to-face meetings are regularly scheduled, but special purpose or project meetings are possible. Occasional work via e-mail, listserver, or telephone conference call will be required through the course of the year, but ordinarily this will not exceed two hours a month. More extensive online working time will be required during the convention program review period in mid to late January.
