Dear SCBEA Current and Prospective Members,
My name is Bridgett Wolfe and I will be serving as your South Carolina Business Education Association President this school year. I am currently an Instructional Technology Coach in Lexington School District 2 and I previously worked in the CTE department at Airport High School, a Special Education teacher at Dent Middle School in Richland 2, a Special Education teacher at Brewington Academy in Sumter 2. I also work as a facilitator for Code.org. As your 2020-21 SCBEA President, please let me say welcome to what is sure to be an unconventional school year. It will be up to us to make the most of our reality and I have no doubt that our Business and Technology will rock it! Your SCBEA has been hard at work this summer ensuring our organization stays beneficial and relevant for you, our members. Here are some of the amazing changes in your organization this year:
We are now accepting credit/debit card payments on our website! There will be a minimal convenience fee but we are super excited to now offer this option to our members.
We have canceled our 2021 Conference, however, we will be offering at least one virtual PD per month on a variety of topics that you can still earn PD credit for. These will be free for members!
We have started a referral program for our members. On the membership form you will now see a referral line under SCBEA membership. For each member you refer, you will be entered into a drawing for one of six fabulous prizes! The Grand prize will be an NBEA membership (valued at $149), we will also have a drawing for five $20 Amazon gift cards! So be sure to start referring your friends and get your name entered into the drawing as many times as possible. The drawing will be held on January 15, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. on our Facebook page via Facebook Live.
We have also purchased a little goody for you that you will receive with your membership card when you join/renew.
I hope you are as excited about these changes as I am. We may have an unusual year ahead of us but rest assured that your SCBEA will be working hard for you. Please mark your calendars for February 2022 when we will be back in Myrtle Beach, SC for our annual convention. We will also be sending out emails reminding you about the monthly PD sessions but we will be offering three in August- Screencastify, Google Meet, and an SCDE Business update. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments or concerns. Your board is here to serve your needs! Let’s make 2021 "One for the Books!"
