I am currently attending the Fall Leadership Conference for the Texas Distance Learning Association. I was blessed with receiving a scholarship to attend the conference and was honestly very clueless to what TxDLA is and does.
I have since met incredibly nice, professional people and have come to identify with the goals and work of TxDLA. I have also been given the opportunity to work with the marketing team.
For any educator, professional, student or individual that has a career involving educational technology, this organization is a great starting point for those of you that want to get involved.
