The VSTE CoSN Council, organized in the Spring of 2014, is the 18th state chapter of  CoSN and is a subcommittee of the Virginia Society for Technology in Education. The purpose of the chapter is to advocate for the professional development of education technology directors, administrators and leaders of Virginia, elevate the professional practice of education technology leaders by coordinating and providing professional development, peer networking, and collaborative opportunities for members, support education technology leaders in providing visionary leadership, sound research and best-in-class examples and case studies, and foster collaborative teams with other professions (i.e., curriculum, finance) to coordinate strategic leadership for Virginia school divisions.
