President’s Annual Report 2018 – When You Come to a Fork in the Road, Take It.
You might say ABHE has come to a fork in the road as we cross the threshold into our 8th decade of existence. For more than two years, ABHE’s executive leadership team, Commission on Accreditation, and Board of Directors have been discussing strategic challenges and opportunities and their implications for the nature and composition of our Association in the days ahead. At their October 29-30, 2017 meetings, the Board and COA officers voted to recommend Delegate Assembly adoption of substantial Constitution and Bylaws changes to enable these strategic proposals. The proposals have been communicated to and thoughtfully discussed among our members in a series of regional Town Hall gatherings during December 2017 and January 2018. We stand on the threshold of a historic vote to adopt these proposals at our February 23, 2018 Delegate Assembly gathering.
