Ch-ch-ch-changes

We've transitioned our component boards (formerly ESPAW, AWMLP, and WASSP) to our new Grade Level Leadership Committees. We made the move for a bunch of reasons, from trying to get more equitable representation across the state to making them more focused on serving our members and less about budgets and bylaws.

For a quick overview of some of these changes, read Dr. Scott Seaman's fall 2019 magazine article. To get a sense of how the new GLLCs operate, read the Standard Operating Procedures.
