Call for Advisory Council Nominations

Who is the Advisory Council?

The Council supports ILTPP by providing insight from schools, vendors, and other Illinois organizations regarding educational technology products, services, and purchasing best ­practices. The Council members are leaders in the educational technology and purchasing/procurement fields, serving as Superintendents, Principals, Technology Directors, School Business Officers or Managers, and liaisons to other Illinois organizations.

If nominees are advanced to the ballot, the letter of interest, headshot, and bio will be displayed in the online ballot for member-wide voting.

Council seats are open to representatives from every school district and time commitments are flexible. ILTPP members are encouraged to apply if they are interested in volunteering or assisting with program activities.

Responsibilities:

  • Attend three onsite or virtual meetings per year.
  • Provide guidance on program objectives, including the formal bid process, RFPs vendor selection, product selection, and bid review.
  • Advocate for the ILTPP program among colleagues and/or constituents.

Advisory Council Nomination & Election Process

Nominees are selected based on the current representational needs of the Illinois Learning Technology Purchase Program (ILTPP) Advisory Council. All nominee submissions are reviewed by the Advisory Council. The Advisory Council seats are multiplied by 1.5 (For example, if there are two spots open on an Advisory Council, then three nominees will be selected for the ballot.) The ballot is then voted on by ILTPP membership. The voting results are reviewed and approved by the Advisory Council and the results lead to the election of the newly appointed or reappointed member(s).
