Welcome to the first issue of the Division 2 Newsletter for 2001. It’s always a bit of a challenge writing the Coordinator’s Corner column because the submissions must be completed approximately one month before publication, and one month can mean a lot in this division! There is a great deal going on at present. Let me fill you in on some of what’s happening and suggest where you can be of assistance.
In addition to heading a division Steering Committee, each coordinator (there are 16 of us now) automatically becomes part of the Board of Division Coordinators (BDC). The purpose of the BDC is to share information, discuss issues of common interest, and support our common goals. The chair of the BDC is Michael Kimbarow (a Division 2 member, I might add). The BDC meets every year at ASHA Convention and twice during the year (in February and July) at the ASHA National Office in Rockville, MD. It is a very dynamic group, and it is a privilege to participate as your representative. At this past meeting, a number of initiatives were discussed. One of the most important was the need to develop some minimum service-provision “benchmarks” among all of the divisions, while still respecting the individuality of each division and recognizing the need for relative autonomy. Some of these benchmarks include formal and regular means of communication with affiliates, and recruitment and maintenance of division membership. At the July BDC meeting, each division is responsible for presenting its 3-year plan for service provision, and your feedback in this regard would be greatly appreciated. To that end, I encourage you to let me know what is important to you as a Division 2 affiliate, what services you find valuable, and what services you would like to see improve. You can reach me at lmaher@bcm.tmc.edu.
