A letter from the President

May 1, 2014


Dear ACEPT Members,


I hope this finds you all having enjoyed a relatively smooth match process and enjoying the spring (?) that is upon us in Chicagoland.


Our next general membership meeting will held next week on site from 8:30 to 9:15 AM at the 2nd Annual ACEPT Conference May 9th at Roosevelt University (Wabash Building), 425 S. Wabash Ave. As a reminder, registration for the conference closes tomorrow, May 2nd. Visitors and guests, including Roosevelt alumni, will be asked to present a state photo ID to obtain a building guest pass. The pass should be returned to Campus Safety when you leave the building. Registrants will check in at the security desk in the lobby then proceed to the 4th floor for registration. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Griger at mgrigar@roosevelt.edu or Eunice Kim at eukim@adler.edu


A few important things will be happening at this meeting, so I hope you will be able to attend:

  • We will be closing nominations for President-Elect for the upcoming 2014-2015 training year. As of now, we have three members who have accepted nominations for this position. They are (in order of their acceptance) Paul Cantz from Adler, Dina Glaser from The Chicago School, and Kelli Johnson from Argosy-Schaumburg. Any further nominations can be made at the meeting or communicated to me via email (tim.mulligan@valpo.edu) any time before the meeting. The election will be held online.


  • We will be discussing this year’s match process. Before then, we are hoping to solicit some brief feedback from you about this year’s match process. It should take less than 5 minutes to complete the survey at this link:

Although we apologize for brief notice, we hope that you will be able to complete the survey before Wednesday, May 7th at 5 pm so that we can compile the data before Friday’s meeting. Any time and effort to share your experience with us is greatly appreciated. If you have questions, please contact Michelle Emerick at michellee@howardbrown.org


  • We will be voting at this meeting to approve the revised bylaws as drafted by the Bylaws Committee. Please review the other two files attached to the email containing this letter. One file contains the complete revised bylaws and the other gives a summary of the changes. If you have questions, please contact Paul Cantz at pcantz@adler.edu


Thank you so much, and I hope to see you next Friday!


Sincerely,

Tim Mulligan, Ph.D
