I am honored to serve as your Education Committee Chairman for the next year. The last year, although challenging, has also opened our eyes to many opportunities/possibilities, not only in our fields, but also in our association.
I am looking forward to working with the members of the Education Committee, the Legislative Committee and the Executive Board to introduce and improve educational opportunities for our members.
Your input and feedback are important to the success of any initiatives that will be considered this year and the committee wants to hear from you! If you are interested, please take the time to complete the Application for Appointment to Permanent Committee on the MCTA website and let us know how you would like to be involved. Feel free share your ideas with me directly (Renee.Fernandes@newbedford-ma.gov), through MCTA ListServ or through our new Executive Director, Beth Whitman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I’d like to extend a special thank you to outgoing chairman, Barbara Barry. It has not been an easy year but Barbara, through her unfaltering professionalism and commitment to the Association, kept the wheels on the track and continued to move us forward.
Again, thank you for the opportunity to serve the association in this capacity and I look forward to working with everyone.
R. Renee Fernandes CMMC/CMMT, Education Chair
