2022 Effective Trusteeship & Board Chair Workshops
Similar to all of you, the League is closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) updates and guidelines as the Omicron Variant increases new cases of COVID-19. The League is taking increased precautions to safeguard your health and safety at the 2022 Effective Trusteeship and Board Chair Workshops, January 28-30, in Sacramento. As of Tuesday, January 4, 2022, this event is still scheduled to be in-person unless or until Governor Newsom or the CDPH prohibits in-person gatherings in numbers affecting our conference.
All registrants who attend in-person League events are required to be fully vaccinated (have received the full series of the COVID-19 vaccine) OR show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours of the start of the event. Fully vaccinated registrants will be asked to verify their vaccination status when registering for the event and will be asked to show proof on-site at the registration desk upon check-in.

It's not easy being an effective trustee or board chair. The League is pleased to offer a workshop for both trustees and board chairs to learn the duties expected of board members of California's Community Colleges. State leaders and experienced trustees will provide comprehensive information on the knowledge and skills necessary to be an effective trustee.
NOTE: This conference is held in conjunction with the Annual Legislative Conference, January 30-31, 2022. Separate registration is required.
Who Should Attend
All trustees should attend the Effective Trusteeship Workshop. There will be ample opportunity to discuss questions and topics surrounding trustee board service. Student trustees and CEOs will also gain valuable knowledge from this workshop.
The Board Chair Workshop is designed for board presidents, vice presidents, and CEOs. Being a board president is an important leadership role. The chair runs board meetings, fosters teamwork, represents the board, and works closely with the CEO.
The Board Chair Handbook will be distributed. Board presidents and vice presidents are encouraged to attend the Effective Trusteeship Workshop with their new trustees and participate in the Board Chair Workshop in the afternoon.
