Greeting from the Treasurer

Peggy Weiss


I am the Treasurer of the Division for Learning Disabilities and I have the fun job of keeping the finances straight. Given the responsible oversight and stewardship of current and previous Executive Board members, DLD is in a good financial position. We currently have reserves in the bank that we are growing in hopes of developing new ideas and initiatives for teachers and those who work with students with LD. We have trimmed our operating budget so that we never spend more than we take in during the year. The Board has made the decision to put most of our valuable information and resources in digital format, both to reach a wider audience (please share with folks) and to reduce the costs of printing and mailing materials.

As with most of the CEC Divisions, our membership is down from previous years so we are working with less in membership dues revenue. However, we are always looking for ways to meet the needs of our members and potential members. Please help us spread the word about the valuable information you receive from DLD on our website, TeachingLD.org, and through our journal, Learning Disabilities Research and Practice. Tell your friends and colleagues. And let us know what more we can do to help you. You can reach me at treas@teachingld.org.
