Hello to all:


I hope all of your fall season’s went well and have made a smooth transition to your winter season’s. I would like to take this time to congratulate all who successfully passed the certification exam this year in Indianapolis. Please don’t hesitate to send me an Email at [email protected] if I can be of any farther assistance.


After thinking long and hard in regards to our District meetings we will make some changes to the current date and layout of our meetings. This year we will have the spring meeting on Saturday April 23rd, 2016. The meetings will be held in Detroit. The complete breakdown of this year’s meetings and site will be emailed to all at the beginning of January. We will do a 3-city rotation in Detroit, Columbus, and Chicago over the next 3 year’s.. I would very much like all Big 10 staffs to meet, all MAC staffs to meet, and all other’s is to share in a roundtable discussion during these meetings. Again a complete itinerary will be shared with everyone in early January. In the meantime, if you have any concerns or workshop ideas for the meetings, please take the time and Email them to me.


Start thinking about the 2016 Tony Anderson Award. We will have a February vote on this. I would really like to have at least 3 nominations from District 5 members Emailed to me by January 15th, so appropriate time can be given to prepare the ballet/ etc.


I hope you all have a blessed holiday season and I will be back in January with complete spring meeting details.



Continued success to all,


Scott Jess
