Fall Courses Begin September 13, In-person and on Zoom

The Annual Meeting will be in person this year!

Among the changes for CVEC this past academic year were the departures and hiring of two-thirds of our staff: our Registration and Finance Director and our Curriculum Director. Both the retirees (Bill Rizzo and Perry Mason) and the new recruits (Nicole Barnette and Daniel Sullivan) will be feted at our Annual Meeting, scheduled for Sunday, October 10, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at the St. John’s Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall.

The program will include recognition of milestones, results of the election of Board members and officers, a talk by one of our new instructors, David Sauer, fascinating reports, and, of course, pie and coffee.

Save the date!

Announcing a New Curriculum Director

After four successful years as Curriculum Director, Perry Mason has announced his intention to hand off this critically important job to someone else. During his tenure, Perry has assembled high quality courses every term, and when the pandemic struck, he worked with others to train instructors to offer the CVEC brand of superb instruction via video conference, keeping our program going and growing despite the necessary restrictions.

Fortunately, we were able to find the ideal candidate, familiar with CVEC courses through taking and teaching them as well as having superb experience in higher ed. Daniel Sullivan, President Emeritus of St Lawrence University, will become the Curriculum Director as of July 1, 2021. For now, Dan and Perry are working together to plan fall term, which is shaping up as a slate of courses divided between the Zoom and in-person options. More to come on that.
