SETDA is the association representing state directors of educational technology. It's focused largely on education technology advocacy and has taken an active role in promoting a number education technology issues at the national level. It also provides professional development and other services for members as well.

The new board of directors membership for 2009 includes:

  • Wayne Hartschuh (Delaware), chair;
  • Jeff Mao (Maine), vice chair;
  • Karen Kahan (Texas), secretary;
  • Cathy Poplin (Arizona), treasurer;
  • Jayne Moore (Maryland);
  • Lan Neugent (Virginia);
  • John O'Connell (Iowa); and
  • Bruce Umpstead (Michigan).

THE Journal's own Geoff Fletcher was once again elected as an emeritus board member. Fletcher is currently editorial director of 1105 Media's Education Group, which includes the education technology publications THE Journal and Campus Technology, and which organizes and hosts events like FETC and the Campus Technology conferences. He was previously with the Texas Education Agency.
