Advocating for Change: Leading with Courageous Conversations
The NCTM Membership and Affiliate Relations Committee (MARC) is excited to offer the 2021 NCTM Leadership Conference in New Orleans July 26–28. This year’s themes of leadership, advocacy, equity, and access will drive a conference that supports your Affiliate’s ability to grow and serve membership through leadership and vision. With time for planning and Catalyzing Change as an anchor resource, next summer’s conference once again offers rich learning and collaboration among the diverse leaders of NCTM’s Affiliates. Come with ideas and leave with a supported action plan to address your Affiliate-specific issues, so you will be ready, for action during the 2021–2022 school year. We enjoyed seeing you online for the 2020 Virtual Leadership Conference and cannot wait to see you in person during summer 2021.
NCTM Resources for Affiliates
Have you seen the NCTM Affiliates resource page? You can find information, forms, and announcements specific to NCTM Affiliates. Affiliates have contacted us recently with questions that are answered on the NCTM Legal and Tax Information page. You may also consider reviewing the NCTM Affiliate Relations Guide to familiarize yourself with guidelines, policies, services and benefits for NCTM Affiliates. From the guide, you can learn about the NCTM Leadership Circle, NCTM Affiliate Book Commission (ABC) program, and grants available to Affiliates. As always, be sure to reach out to your MARC representative if you have any questions or need assistance with your Affiliate. See the 2020–2021 roster for the MARC member in your region!
NCTM Grants for Affiliates
Fewer than six months remain until many grant applications are due. Although the grant proposal is not due until May 1, 2021, you can begin now to plan for how your Affiliate could benefit from this award. You can find more information on the NCTM Affiliate Resources page. Grant amounts range from $2,000 up to $3,500 to help support great work you are doing for your members. If your leadership team is too busy with teaching or coaching, consider asking a faculty member at a nearby college or university or a connection within your state department of education to write a grant with you. NCTM is committed to ensuring that Affiliates have financial support for their innovative ideas. Be sure to use the NCTM strategic framework as you plan and write a grant proposal.
Affiliate Annual Report
Have you submitted your annual report? NCTM Affiliate presidents should submit an annual report to NCTM either the month before their term ends or on the anniversary of their term. Reports may be submitted electronically or as a hard copy. Please visit www.nctm.org/Affiliates/Forms/Affiliate-Annual-Report-Form/ for the necessary forms and downloads. This report updates NCTM records but also provides information about the accomplishments and strengths of your Affiliate as well as challenges you are facing. This report provides wonderful information for how NCTM can support its Affiliates. Reminder: Be sure that your Affiliate remains in good standing with NCTM.

Maybe you have streamlined your remote meeting processes or had a successful virtual conference. Whatever you have been working on, and no matter how small your success, we would love to hear about it!
