You have seen him time and time again during the past year. And he has a name, thanks to AECT leaders who attended the AECT Leadership Conference this summer.
How did Checkers receive his name, you may ask?
During one of the many activities at this summer's leadership conference, attendees were asked to brainstorm possible names for our beloved Louisville convention mascot. Names were written on sticky notes, posted on the wall, and then the voting began.
Some of the more notable suggested names, in addition to Checkers:
Two Sticks Short of a Bundle
Dos Equis XX
+ two more names that are not suitable for the general public :)
Watch for Checkers once you arrive in Louisville. You just never know where you might see him.
Our 2012 Convention is only a few weeks away!
