Formation of DEN Leadership Councils

In the past two months, we have received many requests (and many volunteers) to get the state blogs going again.  We have developed a plan to launch the blogs in conjunction with new DEN Leadership Councils.  The leadership councils will play a critical role in supporting the state-level DEN communities through a variety of communications as well as organization and support of local activities and events.  In some states the leadership councils will build upon the momentum of the advisory boards and in states where an advisory board was never formed, new leadership councils will emerge and follow the model set by the ones already in place.   

Each leadership council will formalize several key leadership positions including:

  • Chair
  • Blog Coordinator
  • Events Coordinator

We are very excited to launch the DEN Leadership Councils in three states: California, Florida and Pennsylvania.  Be sure to visit the state blogs and say hello.

If you are interested in being part of, or forming, a leadership council in your state let us know by posting a comment or contacting Jannita Demian

    PLEASE, PLEASE don’t forget us way down here in Alabama! Pam Walker and I were a few of the STAR Discovery Educators and had begun to get things rolling – especially in Birmingham. Please send me the information. My class has their own blog page and I’m ready to take on another challenge.

    I’d LOVE to get a Council formed in New York. Let me know what New York needs to do to put itself back on the DEN map.
