The Nominating Process for an IASE National Chair

The role of a National Chair (NC) of the International Association of Special Education (IASE) is an individual willing to represent IASE in his or her nation. They communicate nationally about the goals, activities, publications, conferences, projects, volunteer opportunities, journal, newsletter, and website of IASE. Additionally, National Chairs communicate with the IASE Board to provide information about national inclusive and special education events such as conferences, workshops, research projects, volunteer projects, and other sharing opportunities in their countries.  National Chairs assist in extending invitations to become active members of IASE to people who may be interested in our mission and aims.  They act as IASE liaison with neighboring nations, regional partners, or other nations with historical or cultural relationships to their own.
