The AECT 2012 dust has settled - Planning for AECT 2013 is underway!

The dust has settled, and another successful AECT convention is behind us.  With the impact of Sandy on the east and her affect on flights across the US, I was worried that our convention plans would be impacted by mass cancellations.  However, the AECT membership persevered by waiting for countless hours on the phone to be re-booked, re-routing drives to dodge the snowstorm, and even scratching fight plans and driving 10+ hours to get to Louisville.  Such determination by its members is what makes AECT so special; members will go to extraordinary lengths to share their research, catch-up with colleagues and make new friends at our yearly convention.

As with all of our conventions, the 2012 AECT Convention was team effort - from Zeni Colorado's conference planning, to the countless hours of support by division and affiliate planners.  If you have an opportunity, send a note of thanks to your division/affiliate planners, committee members/leadership,  AECT staff members, ect Foundation members, and the many volunteers who made our Louisville convention a success.

Now, it's time to turn our attention to our upcoming 2013 AECT International Convention in Anaheim, CA.  Assisted again by last year's co-planner Zeni Colorado, President-Elect Steve Harmon and his planning team are already hard at work on our 2013 program (actually the 2013 convention work began long before our 2012 convention). The proposal deadline has been set.  Proposals will be accepted until February 15, 2013 - 11:59 p.m. (EST).  The convention call and all the information that you need are available at

So, polish those proposals, submit early, and submit often! Mark your calendars for October 29 to November 2, 2013.  You don't want to miss-out on a great time in Anaheim!
