Online CSTA Chapter Leaders' Summit and CSTA Conference were great, and we're inspired to get our membership together to share what we learned there, and to set things in motion for this year's Tn Valley/N Ga CSTA events. 
On Tuesday 8/4 leadership officers will meet together and plan our activities for the coming year. We will have a recap of the CSTA conference, and share what we learned and how it will benefit our chapter during the 2020/21 year. 

Details of the conference: Three of your chapter leaders attended the CSTA Chapter Leadership Summit on July 9-10 along with over 350 people from across the country. While it was odd not to be in Arlington Virginia, we didn’t miss the hot, muggy weather in the slightest. Instead we experienced a new platform, Hopin, which allowed us to transition between a main stage, concurrent breakouts (sessions) and networking opportunities. 

We were really grateful for the opportunity and were able to get a lot of ideas for our group. These include: 

  • The importance of planning regular virtual leadership meetings. Dates for these will be determined in our leadership meeting next week.  Our chapter is in need of additional leaders and would love to learn of your interest. Please send email to if you are interested in joining us. 
  • Speaking of which, we learned more about recruiting future chapter leaders (Could that be you?!?!?)
  • We learned about how to market our CSTA chapter, and more about how to use CSTA’s MemberNova system. 
  • We heard more about other chapters that have done a CS PD week - we hope to offer something next summer. 

There were a lot of other opportunities we learned about: 

We hope that you will join us for one of both of our upcoming events listed above. If you can’t, stay tuned for more events this fall.
