President's Update

August 2005

It did for me. In fact, I can’t even remember if I took a vacation (no, it’s not old age!). It seems like the Fall semester was here before I knew it. Our campus is now in the third week of the Fall semester and it has never been as busy as it is this year. The long line of students usually tapers off in the second week of school, but we have had long lines weeks prior to the Fall term and through the third week! I was reminded by one of my staff members that we can’t have it both ways. That is, we can’t do all this outreach and then wonder where all the students are coming from!

CCCSFAAA is currently in the midst of elections. If you haven’t voted, time is running out to cast your vote for the 2006 leadership. The election will close on Friday, September 16, 2005. Please log on to the CCCSFAAA web site and cast your vote!

The even numbered regions (2, 4, 6, 8, and 10) have held their elections for Regional Representatives by now. The elected Regional Representatives will serve on the 2006 CCCSFAAA Board for a two year term.

The CCCSFAAA student scholarship applications are now available. Two $500 scholarships will be awarded to each of the ten CCCSFAAA regions. All forms are available on the CCCSFAAA Website. Please be sure to announce this scholarship opportunity to the students on your campus.

Under the leadership of Tim Bonnel, Chancellor’s Office, and in partnership with CCCSFAAA, the New Directors Training was held in late June. The event was followed by the first-ever All Directors Conference. There was an outstanding turn-out in attendance, with the majority of the 109 California Community Colleges represented at the All Directors Training. The conference was well received and quite a success! Kudos to Tim Bonnel!

Since March, members of the Executive Board and volunteers have been busy advocating on behalf of our membership and the students we represent. Some of the many activities include: letters to the CSAC Commissioners, review of the CSAC system generated letters, attendance at Commission meetings, and participation in multi-lingual media activities. CCCSFAAA also joined forces with CASFAA to speak before the Commission and provided a presentation to Legislative staff members. Sooooo….with so much activity going on, I’ve lost track of time! Now you can understand why there’s a void between my last message in March and this one.

The annual conference plans are well underway for December 9 – 11 in Sacramento. The conference committee, co-chaired by John Muskavitch and Toni DuBois, is working hard to plan and coordinate informative sessions and activities. Online conference registration and hotel reservations will open on September 1st. Wait until you see the wonderful graphics!

In closing, remember that “Constitution Day” is right around the corner, slated for September 17 each year. If your institution still doesn’t know how they’re going to meet this new federal requirement, check out the “News and Updates” section of the CCCSFAAA web site for information and program ideas.

All the best!
Susan Jones
