Donna Karsten

Inschool: Learning Management Coordinator

I attended my first NCSM conference in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2002; and I instantly became a fan of this event and of this organization. In 2008, I was elected to the Board as the Canadian Regional Director, a position I held for four years. Being involved with NCSM at this level was a fantastic experience and I encourage everyone to seek out opportunities to become more involved with NCSM.

I have served the board as NCTM Representative and then as Volunteer Coordinator. I am excited to take on the role of NCTM Representative again. I will represent NCSM at affiliate and delegate meetings at the NCTM Annual Conference. I will also setup and run the NCTM Consignment Book Store at the NCSM Annual Conference and the NCSM Booth at the NCTM Annual Conference. To successfully manage these tasks, I will be on the hunt for volunteers to work selling books, greeting members and potential members, and generally promoting NCSM.

I attended my first NCSM conference in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2002; and I instantly became a fan of this event and of this organization. I knew that from that point forward I would be a member and attend as many NCSM opportunities as possible. I have only missed one NCSM Annual Conference since this time.

In 2008, I was elected to the Board as the Canadian Regional Director, a position I held for four years. Being involved with NCSM at this level was a fantastic experience and I encourage everyone to seek out opportunities to become more involved with NCSM.

Next, I was appointed to the board as the NCTM Representative. I had the opportunity to represent NCSM at affiliate and delegate meetings at the NCTM Annual Conference. I organized and ran the NCSM Book Store including an NCTM Consignment Book Store at the Annual Conference; as well as the NCSM Booth at the NCTM Annual Conference. I would like to thank the many volunteers that help to make these jobs a pleasure.

Which takes me to my next step with NCSM, as Volunteer Coordinator. I look forward to working with each of you as members and volunteers as we continue to grow and strengthen this outstanding organization.

What has it meant to you?
