CALL TO ORDER
President Sue Hashway called the meeting of the NADE 2003-2004 Board to order at 12:00
noon CST via conference call. Others in attendance were President-Elect Pat Newell, Vice
President Vickie Kelly, Treasurer Paul Hrabovsky, and Secretary Dessie S. Williams.

CONSTITUTION COMMITTEE
Russ Hodges and James Smith, Co-Chairs of the Constitution Committee, submitted an opinion
to the Board about the suspended activities of the Cultural Diversity and International Access
Committees and the Monograph and Publications Committees.

Action Item: Secretary Williams made a motion that President Hashway communicate the
following to the Constitution Committee: The Board agrees with the Constitution Committee’s
opinion that “suspending and combining standing committees is unconstitutional.” Contrary to
the Constitution Committee’s interpretation, however, the Board did not take these actions. The
Board suspended the activities of the committees, not the committees. Subsequent to this, task-
oriented special committees were formed to review the functions of these committees, and their
charge was to report their findings to the Board. This motion was seconded by Treasurer
Hrabovsky, and it passed. (For 5 Against 0 Abstentions 0)

Action Item: The Policy Handbook and minutes of the Board’s proceedings are to be forwarded
to the Constitution and By-Laws Committee. Vice President Kelly reiterated the charge to the
Constitution and By-Laws Committee, with specific responsibilities to “…coordinate our
Constitution, By-Laws, and Policy Handbook, with those decisions reflected in our Board
minutes...making sure that our decisions aren't in conflict with the policies and governing
documents of our Association.”

JOURNAL OF DEVELOPMENTAL EDUCATION (JDE)
Discussion ensued about consideration of using a tiered membership structure, and President
Hashway emphasized that NADE must be certain to satisfy Constitutional Amendment
requirements regarding this concept, if any. It was suggested that this issue be presented to the
Leadership Congress for approval.

JDE Contract
On June 18, 2003, the JDE Editor, Barbara Calderwood, emailed each Board member a draft
subscription agreement with amendments. It reflects the one-cycle, three-year term that NADE
requested to be implemented. The pricing reflects costs currently in place. Editor Calderwood
inquired as to when the Executive Board would like to consider new base prices for the three
volumes that would be included in the agreement. She stated that she could complete the
historical cost analysis and project new base prices for the Board’s consideration by July 15,
2003. The Board reviewed the proposed contract from Editor Calderwood. President Hashway
asked for Board members’ opinions, and pursuit of legal council was suggested. The President
presented concerns about base prices of the JDE. Treasurer Hrabovsky observed that the
proposed contract lacked a price per issue and a number of issues per year. The President
requested that members specify other sections where they had questions and report them to her.

JDE Contract (Continued)
Action Item: President-Elect Newell made a motion that President Hashway collect input from
Board members regarding the JDE contract and develop a list of concerns to be forwarded to
Editor Calderwood. The motion was seconded by Vice President Kelly, and it passed. (For 5

JDE Outstanding Article Award
President Hashway appointed Carol Bader, Norman Stahl, and Mary L. Wolting to the
Committee to Review Criteria for the JDE Award.

Action Item: In her notification to Editor Calderwood, President Hashway stated “once all
committee members are in place, these experts should be able to complete their work by July 15
and leave an appropriate amount of time for our (NADE Board) joint review of their suggestions
and for the initial awards process to begin.”

Carol Bader was named Chair of the Committee to Review Criteria for the JDE Award.
President Hashway forwarded the charge to the Committee. Carol Bader has been in
communication with members of the JDE Outstanding Article Award Committee.

NADE’s Advertisement in the JDE
On June 3, 2003, Treasurer Hrabovsky signed the JDE advertising contract for the back cover of
the Fall 2003 issue. (A full-page advertisement costs $577.80 per insertion plus $75 per
insertion for spot color, camera ready.) He emailed JDE Editor Calderwood stating that he
“received the (current) JDE advertising contract, signed, and mailed today.”

The NADE 2004 Conference team will use the back cover of the JDE Fall issue for the Call to
Conference advertisement. They removed the NADE logo that would have incurred an
additional $75 for the NADE blue ink. The Board approved the change, and President Hashway
sent the advertisement to Editor Calderwood. (For 5 Against 0 Abstentions 0).

KELLOGG AWARD
President Hashway asked that the Emeritus Council suggest a process for changing the
application date of the Kellogg Institute Award.

A proposal was made to change the current January 1 application submission date of the Kellogg
Award to allow sufficient time for selection and announcement of the recipient. With this
change, the recipient would be appointed and notified at the end of April and would attend the
Kellogg Institute during the summer. The recipient would be announced in the NADE
Newsletter and at the Conference subsequent to this.

Action Item: President Hashway will communicate with the Emeritus Council to determine the
