Subject: [TXAHEAD-BOD] FW: Extending Membership to Louisiana Colleagues
I am planning to send my monthly membership report by tomorrow (I will not be able to participate in the conference call because I will be on a flight to Hawaii for my vacation).
But I wanted to let you all know that yesterday I sent out this e-mail invitation to about 50 DS providers in the state of Louisiana. I've received 2 interest e-mails so far. (Chuck: you may get a few new applications in the next few weeks).

Dear Disability Service Provider in Louisiana:
My name is Tracey Forman and I am currently the Communications/Membership Director of Association on Higher Education And Disability (AHEAD) in Texas. AHEAD in Texas (http://ahead.org/affiliates/texas) is a non-profit, 501c3 association consisting primarily of disability service providers in higher education.
Since Louisiana does not currently have a state-level AHEAD organization, AHEAD in Texas would like to invite you to join our organization so that you can network with other colleagues and participate in our state and regional conferences at a discounted rate. We already have a few members that are based in New Mexico and Louisiana, but wanted to formally extend out invitation to all potential members in Louisiana. We would also be willing to help Louisiana develop your own state-level AHEAD organization in the future, if there is an interest.
If you did not already know the AHEAD International Conference (http://ahead.org/conferences/2012) is being held in New Orleans in July 2012. This will also provide a wonderful opportunity for Louisiana disability service providers to network with each other and to explore the possibility of developing a state-level organization in the future.
Other regional professional development opportunities include:
1. Expanding Horizons Conference (November 17-18, 2011 in Tomball, TX)
2. AHEAD in Texas Spring Conference (April 12-13, 2012 in San Antonio, TX)
Becoming a member of AHEAD in Texas has many benefits:
* Access to AHEAD in Texas listserv mailing for up-to-date information and networking
* Discounts to AHEAD in Texas subsidized workshops
* Access to job postings
* 10% discount on all Disability Access, Information and Support (DAIS) products (see http://www.janejarrow.com)
The AHEAD in Texas membership year usually runs January 1st - December 31. However in an effort to establish new connections with our colleagues in Louisiana, we are offering you an early start to our 2012 memberships. Any new membership application received before the end of 2011 will begin membership immediately and extend through the end of December, 2012.
You will find an AHEAD in Texas membership application attached. If you would like to connect with our organization, please take a few moments to fill out the application or to forward it to your colleagues. If you have any questions, please contact me.
Thank you for your consideration.
