Welcome to the 2018 Annual Trustees Conference. Trustees are leaders when they promote and sustain their colleges’ missions to assure student learning and make a difference for their communities. They are responsible for anticipating and responding to new challenges related to environmental and architectural sustainability, leadership turnover, accountability, and changing communities. Effective governing boards ensure that their colleges continue to provide high quality education and service.
Effective governing boards are created by dedicated, knowledgeable trustees and chief executives. Your participation in the 2018 Trustees Conference will strengthen the skills and knowledge required to lead your colleges and be accountable to your communities. Conference speakers and sessions will explore student success, fiscal responsibility, educational trends and effective trusteeship.
Thank you on behalf of CCCT for the work you do and the leadership you provide for the people of California.
