President's Message: Investing in People as Educational Change Agents--75 Years and Counting
Bertrand, Bill
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v71 n6 p4-6 Mar 2012
The field of industrial arts education endured with little change for over half a decade. It was during this time that a group of like-minded individuals attended a meeting in Cleveland, Ohio and decided to form an association with the common purpose of promoting the profession and field of industrial arts education: the American Industrial Arts Association (AIAA). In February of 1985, the AIAA became the International Technology Education Association (ITEA) in response to societal changes that had been developing for nearly 40 years. The professional organization that has served teachers for nearly 75 years underwent yet another name change in March 2010 to become the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA). As the professional association for technology, innovation, design, and engineering educators, ITEEA is poised to provide the leadership to advance the profession in the 21st century. While ITEEA (the organization) strengthens the profession through leadership, professional development, membership services, publications, and curricula, its real strength comes from its members. There are many ways that members can get involved in fulfilling the commitment of technological literacy for all during the 2012-2015 period of the strategic plan called, "Investing in People as Educational Change Agents." The author stresses that members have the opportunity and are encouraged to participate in activities that are a part of the strategic plan.
