President's Update

January 2005

This month is almost over so I thought I better get my monthly message out to the membership as promised. Like many of you, my staff and I are busy giving financial aid presentations at the local high schools and community events. On February 12th we will hold our “Cash for College” event and we have invited our local legislators. In our correspondence to the legislators, we also let them know that we were available to assist them with the workshops that they plan to host for their constituents. I encourage all of you to build a relationship with your local legislators.

On February 1st and 2nd we will hold our first CCCSFAAA Executive Board meeting. This year we are inviting members from each of our regions that have an interest in attending our Board meetings and learning more about the association. I am hopeful that it will spark interest in being involved with association activities or committees. Our first guests will be Mary Spady from Region 1 and Iris Fernandez from Region 7. If you are interested in attending a future Board meeting let your regional representative know.

So far I have received 18 volunteer forms. The names of those volunteers have been forwarded to the appropriate committee chairs. If you simply forgot to send me your volunteer forms…it’s not too late. Remember that our association is dependent on volunteers. In other words, WE NEED YOU. The volunteer form is available on our web site, www.cccsfaaa.org, as an online form.

Soon we will be planning the dates and locations of our Spring Training events.
More information will be forthcoming.

On another note, many of you quickly responded to the news about Maureen Martinez with your thoughts and prayers. Members even assisted the staff at San Bernardino Valley College by helping students. All of your efforts are so appreciated. The loss of Maureen Brady Martinez has left a big void in our lives and especially for those that worked so closely with her on a daily basis. At the request of the family, two memorial scholarships have been established. You may send your contributions to the following address:

San Bernardino Valley College Foundation
Maureen Martinez Memorial Scholarship Fund
701 S. Mount Vernon Ave.
San Bernardino, CA 92410

Look for my next message next month and for now…have a good Spring term.

            Susan Jones, CCCSFAAA President
