Member Vote on the ASCD and ISTE Merger

About the Proposed Merger with ISTE

The ASCD Board of Directors approved a plan to merge with ISTE, the International Society of Technology in Education.

  • ASCD and ISTE Boards of Directors unanimously agreed to the merger.

  • As an ASCD member, you have the right to vote on the Plan of Merger, which includes the Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation.

  • There are two ways you can share your approval, in-person or electronically.

    1. In person: Each individual who was a Member of ASCD as of September 28, 2022, is eligible to cast one vote on the merger by attending the Annual Meeting to be held on November 14, 2022, from Noon–1 p.m. Eastern Time, at ASCD's headquarters, 2800 Shirlington Road, Suite 1001, Arlington, Virginia 22206.

    2. Electronically: Each eligible Member of ASCD may cast one vote on the merger by submitting a proxy using this electronic system. A proxy will allow Dr. Avis Williams, ASCD Board President, to cast the Member's vote, either in accordance with specific directions given by the Member on how to vote, or in Dr. Williams' discretion.

  • If approved, ASCD and ISTE would operate under their brands, as two divisions of a newly created nonprofit with new bylaws.

 

To Submit a Proxy Vote:

  • Please log in to ASCD's website above using your member login credentials. If you are eligible to vote, a "Vote" button will be visible. Click that button to start the voting process.

  • Additional instructions for proxy voting will be provided in the voting site.
