Hilary Goldmann is the Director of Government Affairs for the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), and has more than 20 years of experience working in the public policy and advocacy arena. She is responsible for developing and executing ISTE’s federal and state public policy agenda and mobilizing its grassroots efforts. Her “Voices Carry” column is a regular feature of ISTE’s Learning and Leading with Technology magazine and her “inside the beltway” presentations are popular features at ISTE Affiliate state conferences and other national conferences.

Before joining ISTE in July 2005, she led the Higher Education Information Technology (HEIT) Alliance, a coalition of 10 U.S. higher education and library associations that was established to promote the higher education and library community’s interests in federal information technology policy. Prior to her work with the HEIT Alliance she was the Director of Congressional Relations at the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), where she headed up AASCU’s policy and advocacy efforts on budget and appropriations, teacher preparation, information technology, science education and research, and managed the association’s grassroots activities.

Ms. Goldmann got her public policy start as an aide to former U.S. Senator Howard Metzenbaum. She is a graduate of the State University of New York at Binghamton.

Dr. Pamela Moran, superintendent, serves the learners of Albemarle County Public Schools in Virginia. For more than 30 years, she has held a wide variety of teaching and leadership roles in elementary, middle, and high schools as well as at the district level. As an adjunct instructor for the University of Virginia, Pam Moran has taught instructional and leadership courses across the state. The experience of working at all levels of public schooling provides her with a deep understanding of both the vertical and horizontal challenges and opportunities being explored by PK-12-16 learning communities today.

Connecting with other public school educators to make sense of needed transitions in our field as we close in on the second decade of the 21st Century is a passion. Pam is energized by conversations with young people who relish emerging technologies as learning and communication tools, and see themselves as contributors to the communities in which they live. Engagement with teachers and principals who believe, as did Horace Mann, “when a child has no hope, a nation has no future” inspires her. She holds a B.S. degree from Furman University and a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Virginia.

Dr. Luvelle Brown currently serves as the Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the Albemarle County Public Schools in Virginia.
