Dear CCCAOE Members:

The California Community College Association for Occupational Education (CCCAOE) is seeking nominations for open Board positions. Elected Board Members serve as liaisons between the board and its membership. Their role is to assist members in promoting and implementing the vision, mission and goals of the Association as identified in the strategic plan. Elected Board Members are expected to contribute and enhance the educational and training needs that focus on community college and workforce and economic development.

Elected Board Members are expected to attend, and participate in, the Fall & Spring conferences, four face-to-face Board Business Meetings (held January, Spring Conference, June, Fall Conference) and the Summer Planning Retreat. Regional Vice Presidents must be current members who are employed by a California community college district and have attended a conference in the past year to qualify for nomination to Board. Executive Board members must be current members employed by a California community college district and have served on the board within the past five years.

Given the expectations for in-person board meetings and conference calls, it is important that you have a conversation with your supervisor as well as Vice President before submitting your nomination so that they understand the commitment required to the Board.
