A Message From Your New President

Greetings to all affiliates and members of CCEAM!

Carolyn Shields, Canada, president
Paul Miller, Jamaica, past president
Hauwa Imam, Nigeria, vice-president

As your new executive, we want to update you on the activities of CCEAM. We are an organization that is made up of affiliate members who are voting members as well as individual members from countries where there are no affiliates. Our goal is to foster the theory and practice of leadership across various educational settings, with particular attention to creating spaces for every voice, and with a strong commitment to cultural relevance and multiple approaches and perspectives. The values of our logo reflect our strong beliefs and practices.

We would like you to tell us what you want. How can we help you? Among other benefits, all members receive our journal, International Studies in Educational Administration. We are working to improve all processes associated with the journal and to ensure it is more widely and fully indexed. We invite you to submit your work to this journal using the publications link.

We look forward to hearing from you, either by directly emailing any of us or through an email to our CEO, Patricia Briscoe at cceamfuture@gmail.com

We held a joint conference with BELMAS in Liverpool, England from July 8-10, 2022. There we listened to some stimulating presentations including one by our sponsored keynoter, Mere Berryman from New Zealand. Her talk entitled Understanding historical events – leaders building stronger future connections for ‘all’ learners was extremely well received.

At the gala dinner, which was followed by lively dancing to Beatles music, we also presented two esteemed CCEAM members, Ken Brien and Hauwa Imam, with our highest honour: being made a Fellow of CCEAM.

During the Board Meeting, we also elected a new executive as follows:

Past President Paul Miller

Our Journal: Supporting Our Education Community and Expressing Our Gratitude

As one of the oldest journals in the educational leadership field, the academic journal of CCEAM, International Studies in Educational Administration is well placed to make an important contribution and so four issues of the journal have been devoted to focusing on responses to the Coronavirus pandemic that is currently gripping our world.

Recently, we put out a Special Call for papers focussing on Educational Responses to the Pandemic. The response was overwhelming. There were more than 150 submissions from more than 27 countries. We accepted 60 proposals that will be published over four issues. The first special issue has already been published!

As a service to the educational community worldwide, we are providing open access to these special issues as they are produced during 2020 and beyond. The issues as they are published are available by clicking the link below.
