1.Thank you for the fantastic response so far to our call for chairpersons for the 2013 CEA Convention! We still have a few sectionals that need a chairperson. The job is pretty simple, you pick up the sectional envelope from convention headquarters in the lobby of the Century Center, introduce the speaker, give the speaker his/her check and pass out/collect the surveys. If you're interested in volunteering (or just want to see what sectionals are lined up already for the convention), click this link:http://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050F48A4AF2CA75-sectional
*** Note, the sectional schedule is subject to change.
