Advantages of a State Chapter

Create a professional learning network that complements membership in other professional associations.
Provide an annual CoSN CTO Clinic in Minnesota at a location of our choosing.
Provide a statewide structure to use CoSN resources effectively.
Receive special rates for the CoSN Certified Education Technology Leader (CETL) certification and preparation classes.
- Support for other initiatives our state wants to pursue with our chapter resources.
