ITEEA Releases 2020 Strategic Plan

May 04, 2020

News - May20 - SP

ITEEA is pleased to release its 2020-21 ITEEA Strategic Plan Document. This is the “guiding document” for ITEEA's many Committees and Task Forces. It is the result of many hours of discussion, reading, and reviewing by the ITEEA Executive Board and Board of Directors and aligns with our Task Forces.  

ITEEA Past-President Michael Sandell commented, "while the 2020-21 Strategic Plan was to be released at the 2020 Annual Conference's Governance Session, we wanted to provide our colleagues with the opportunity to take a look at this version of the plan, see where ITEEA is headed, and find some way to assist our organization in the next year."

ITEEA President, Dr. Philip Reed, shared, "ITEEA has opportunities for every technology and engineering educator through its Councils, Committees, and Task Forces. Members in these groups are key in implementing ITEEA’s Strategic Plan to bring STEM to life!"
