1994 Conference To Be at South Padre Island

As you read this, plans are underway for the 1994 ACE-DHH Conference. The conference will be at South Padre Island, Texas, about an hour's drive from the airport at Brownsville. Local Arrangements Chair Al White, of Texas Women's University, is working on locating a hotel that will meet our needs. Once that is done, a specific date can be set for the conference. The dates and hotel, along with other specifics, will be announced in the Fall newsletter. President-Elect Paul Crutchfield, of Flagler College, will be the program chair. He would like your input as he begins planning the program. A questionnaire for this purpose is included in the newsletter. Please fill it out and mail it to Paul, whose address is on the form.

Membership Information

At the 1992 conference the Executive Board changed to membership year to coincide with the calendar year. Accordingly, the books are now "closed" for the 1993 membership year. The Fall newsletter will include an application form for the 1994 membership year for both new and continuing members. Please do not renew your membership before that time.

Ad Hoc Constitution/ By-Laws Committee

At the 1993 conference Shirin Antia, Larry Fleischer, and Sally Holt volunteered to serve on an ad hoc committee to continue working on revision of the ACE-DHH constitution and by-laws. Additional volunteers are needed. Please contact Marilyn Sass-Lehrer if you are interested. (Her address and telephone number are elsewhere in this newsletter.)

The CEASD Committee on Ethnic and Multicultural Concerns has established a $1,000 scholarship to be awarded to an ethnic, multicultural minority graduate students enrolled in an approved program in deaf education for the coming academic year. Applications should be requested from Dr. Oscar P. Cohen, Superintendent, Lexington School for the Deaf, 30th Avenue and 75th St., Jackson Heights, NY 11370.

CED News

Harold Johnson is now the person responsible for CED program approval. Questions regarding this process should be directed to Harold at Kent State University, 401 White Hall, Kent, OH 44242.

Business Meeting Correction

After the 1993 conference, the ACE-DHH Executive Board realized that the language of the CED standard approved at the business meeting was not the exact wording approved by CED. (See minutes, page 6.) Subsequently, a quorum of the Board moved editing the wording to correspond with the actual CED language by deleting the concluding phrase "under 1.2.4a for bilingual/bicultural ASL programs."
