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, July, 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 ten 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. Nominations can be made by the region as a whole and you are welcome to self-nominate.

Board nominations are currently being sought for the following positions:

  • President Elect -- Nominees for President are CCCAOE members who have served as an elected officer of the Board of the association within the past five years. Once elected, they serve as President-elect, President and Past- President, each for one-year. The President facilitates Board meetings, represents the Association to Consultation Council, Board of Governors, and the CCC Chancellor’s Office, and collaborates with other elected Board members to implement the policies and agenda of the Association, and oversees the work of the executive staff.

  • Communications Officer -- The Communications Officer serves for a period of two-years and is responsible for all internal and external communications of the Association, in both electronic and print formats. 

  • Regional Vice Presidents (RVP) -- RVPs serve for a period of two years and are nominated from the geographic areas they represent and are elected only by the membership of that region. The RVPs up for election are:
