APRIL 13, DEADLINE TO NOMINATE INDUCTEES: The process to nominate an inductee has been simplified.
The induction form has been eliminated and you just need to send a resume, bio or CV of your candidate(s). The Membership Chair will confirm that the candidate meets all the requirements and submits the candidate to the Director for approval. The other change that is that we will have “rolling admissions”. As soon as the candidate is approved she will be notified of her acceptance.
If you have a candidate to present, please send resume, bio or CV to Dr. Yasmia Dunn, the Membership Chair, . The deadline for submitting candidates is April 13, 2019. Inductees will be notified by May 4.
There are three requirements to join COD.
1) Membership is by invitation or sponsorship only and the member inviting or sponsoring the candidate must
have paid her dues for the current year;
2) The candidate must have earned a doctorate from a regionally accredited institution as defined by the U.S.
Department of Education;
