Welcome to the Adventure of the American
Mind administration page. This section provides the information
and documentation necessary to administer the AAM program.
If you are new to the program, we are pleased
that you are interested in partnering with The Education
Consortium of the Western Carolinas in a program designed
to enhance the quality of education through the use of technology
and the vast online digital resources of the Library of
Partner Handbook (2MB PDF)
The Partner Handbook is the first resource for new directors beginning an AAM program and provides the information and documentation necessary for this phase of program development. It also serves as an ongoing reference guide for directors and staff.
For additional information, clarification, and guidance contact the AAM Business Manager.
The Education and Research Consortium hosts three AAM
Partner meetings per year. The AAM management team uses
these meetings as an outlet for providing Directors with
Program information such as strategic planning, special
project updates, administrative changes, and reports submitted
to the Library of Congress. The AAM Partner meetings also
provide an excellent forum for Partner Directors to exchange
program related ideas and experiences. The Partner Meetings
web page provides details on meeting agendas, locations,
directions, and lodging options.
This calendar of selected educational conferences is provided for the convenience and planning of AAM Partners.
AAM Partner Contact List
The AAM Partner contact list is a link to the wealth of
diverse experience and information available from our program
directors and their staff. The AAM community is highly
collaborative and we urge all current, new and future partners
and their staff to make contact with their colleagues.
Here AAM Partners can find various
documents and templates to assist in the development
of web sites,
AAM-related documents, and more, and the AAM logo in
a variety of file formats.
