Leadership Cohort Update - February 2009

Since the beginning of January, Leadership Cohort members have been instrumental in establishing new local chapters for the Southern New Jersey Shore and Houston.

Several members of the Leadership Cohort participated in the Rebooting Computing Summit held in Mountain View, California January 12-14. Rebooting Computing is a project sponsored by the National Science Foundation, through Dr. Peter Denning at the Naval Postgraduate School, to develop awareness and an action plan to tackle the issues surrounding the decline in computer science in the United States. Many of the goals of the project are aligned with the goals set by CSTA for the Leadership Cohort, so participating in the summit allowed us to join the conversation and raise awareness in the broader community of the activities in which we are already engaged.

To learn more about the cohort, join us at the CS & IT Symposium in Washington, DC on June 27. We will be presenting a panel: Building Effective Leadership at the Grass Roots
