The Century Club 100, which at one time served as the governing body of AASA, will hold its annual luncheon at noon on Thursday, Feb. 14, at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles.
Open to members only, the organization’s Collegial Congress presentation will focus on international trends in education. Speaker Anthony Mackay, the new CEO and president of the National Center on Education and the Economy, will explore the unique challenges in K-12 education faced by countries around the world.
The Century Club 100 has served as an honorary organization facilitating the cross-country exchange of ideas within a social context since 1925. The club may well be the longest continuing tradition associated with the AASA National Conference on Education.
The group’s executive secretary and treasurer is Tom Shelton of Lexington, Ky. Jerry Thacker, superintendent of Penn-Harris-Madison School Corp. in Mishawaka, Ind., is president in 2019. Chuck Ledbetter, superintendent in Pike Road, Ala., is 1st vice president, and the 2nd vice president is Jule Walker, deputy state superintendent of operations in Montana.
The Century Club consists of 100 active members (two from each state), 90 associate members and 14 honorary members. AASA Executive Director Dan Domenech is a lifetime Century Club honoree.
CareHere, LLC, an employee-sponsored healthcare provider, provided support for the annual luncheon.
Active superintendent members of the club who have changed positions should contact Shelton.
