Membership Meeting, October 2022

Cocktail Reception

In October, all CASE members were invited to attend a cocktail reception. These general membership meetings happen twice a year. At this event, Executive Director, Billy Burke, spoke to the members. His presentation included information about the recent changes to the compensation package. Following the presentation, CASE members had the opportunity to ask questions, which Billy answered. This presentation was captured in the video below, taken on October 24, 2022.

2018 Spring Legislative Reception

MASSP Aspiring Leaders Workshop

The Maryland Association of Secondary Public School Principals (MASSP) is offering Aspiring Leaders Workshop on April 28, 2018 from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab (APL) in Laurel, Maryland. Their announcement follows.

We sold out our February workshop.  So back by popular demand, we provide interested individuals a chance to experience this workshop attended by hundreds of Maryland aspiring leaders over the past two years.  This program has received rave reviews from virtually every attendee.  It is a repeat of the Pre-Assessment Center training held earlier this year.

Participants will explore how they might assess and develop their administrative skills as they prepare for a promotion.  Activities will be reflective, hands-on, thought provoking and introduce participants to the various steps used in many District-based Assessment Centers.

Activities for the day will include:

  • In-basket exercise
  • Data analysis exercise
  • Instructional observation and creation of feedback
  • Measured group activity
  • Writing sample (with feedback)
  • Analysis of your resume
  • Strategies/Tips for success
  • Personal interview (with peer feedback)

We will share wisdom from over 80 years of experience interviewing and rating candidates for promotion.

Our goal is to provide aspiring leaders experiences in this workshop typically NOT offered in your local school district leadership development programs.

Registration includes a continental breakfast provided in the morning beginning at 8:30 AM as well as lunch served on site provided by Columbia Chef Caterers.

Where better to spend a gorgeous Friday in October than at Greystone Golf Course in Whitehall?

Spring 2015 General Membership Meeting

April 16, 2015

CASE held the Spring Membership meeting on April 16th at Liberatore’s Ristorante. It was well attended and County Executive Kevin Kamenetz with Councilmen David Marks and Julian Jones brought greetings from our partners in county government. Jeff Graham and Bill Watt of Robert W. Baird & Co. announced a partnership with CASE to provide financial services to our members.

In the business session of the meeting, the new modifications to the Master Agreement with BCPS was approved. This includes the “Agency Fee” agreement and allows the process to continue that will set a fee and begin collection in the 2015–16 school year.

There was a pleasant and collegial air throughout the event with networking and catching up at the top of the agenda. Food and beverages were enjoyed and all went well.
