VIDBE-Q Volume 66 Issue 3 Kathleen Stanfa, Kutztown University, stanfa@kutztown.edu I returned from CEC's annual Leadership Institute earlier this month refreshed and inspired to be more involved in our organization. As President-Elect of DVIDB, I was invited to attend along with other CEC Unit and Division Presidents, Presidents-Elect, Treasurers, and Membership Chairs. Each year Division and Unit Leadership come together with other senior CEC volunteers to become more effective leaders. We participate in interactive presentations, conversations, real-time collaboration, and opportunities to network. We learn about all aspects of organization, including finance, membership, professional development, marketing, communications, and branding. We learn more about CEC and the direction the organization is taking. Most importantly, we energize each other as volunteer leaders. My experience at the Leadership Institute has me reflecting on my own reasons for becoming involved in DVIDB. It also encouraged me reflect on the importance of nurturing new leaders and maintaining a thriving leadership pipeline for DVIDB to ensure we are able to continue the Change Begins Here. Can We Count You In?
