The CCME Board recommends a number of minor clarification changes to the Bylaws. These include: a reference to Facebook, changing Officers of the Executive Board to just Executive Board, and a clarification of the duties of the Event Manager. These items are proposed as bylaws changes for the 2015-2016 year.

Three copies of the Bylaws are posted in the CCME Bylaws box on the right-hand side: 1. The Current Bylaws, 2. The Bylaws with recommended changes highlighted, and 3. Bylaws with changes incorporated.

A vote of the membership will be taken at the 2015 CCME Symposium in Anaheim. Any comments regarding the proposed changes can be directed to Michael Heberling, Immediate Past President at mheber01@baker.edu.

A special event at the 2012 Council of College and Military Educators (CCME) symposium at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Resort, 13-16 February, will be “CCME Cares 2012”. The mission of “CCME Cares 2012” is to show our gratitude to the deployed service members of our country by preparing and assembling care packages during the symposium. The goal of “CCME Cares 2012” is to provide 1000 care packages, each to include postcards and letters along with items that the troops have told us they would like to have. CCME is partnering with Operation Gratitude in this effort.

CCME is looking for donations, big and small – every single dollar is important! A $1000 donation will result in a listing as a “Friend of Operation Gratitude” on the organization website, www.operationgratitude.com
You can send your donations by check (payable to CCME) or with a credit card to:

C/o Exhibit Promotion Plus, Inc
11620 Vixens Path

The event will kick off on Monday 13 February in the Exhibit Hall of the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld during the President's Reception. The packing will continue throughout Tuesday 14 February and will come to an end on Wednesday, 15 February.
