Thanks to the people who have signed up to be a campus representative. Currently, we have representatives at 11 of the great 58 community colleges across North Carolina. Some people have asked, “How much of a time commitment does a campus representative involve?” Our recommendation would be to try and reach this standard:
colLABorate with 58: 5 days a month, 8 minutes a day
NCMATYC wants to help provide ways for members to communicate and collaborate with the 58 community colleges in North Carolina. If 40 minutes a month sounds like too much time, then the start with 10 minutes or what ever time commitment works for your schedule. Overall, a campus representative is an active NCMATYC member. Your involvement could include sharing NCMATYC news at your mathematics department meeting, sharing legislation issues that relate to NCMATYC, posting a lesson that you did in the NCMATYC Slack channel, chatting with members how they handle multiple measures at their school, writing a post for the NCMATYC website, etc. Even if a campus representative doesn’t seem like it will work for you, please try it out for a couple of months. Find some other people on your campus and become campus representatives together. Help each other out first and then involve NCMATYC with that collaboration.
NCMATYC appreciates your support and involvement. Each one of you have an important part in continuing the strength and leadership that NCMATYC has shown as a AMATYC affiliate.

Many community colleges across North Carolina have begun their 2016 Fall Semester. This means that lesson plans are being developed, pacing guides are being created, meetings are being scheduled, and so on. The list goes on and on of all of the amazing work that you do. NCMATYC wants to help you share and communicate with other educators among The Great 58 community colleges. One way to do this is to become a NCMATYC campus representative. NCMATYC campus representatives are not limited to one person from each school. Encourage all of your colleagues to sign up, as a way to say, “Yes, I will be active with NCMATYC through out the year.” Click the following link for more details.
