The Annual Executive Assistants Workshop (EAW) is a much-anticipated event where executive assistants from community college districts around the State have the opportunity to connect with one another, exchange best practice ideas, and increase their ability to address key issues applicable to their unique leadership role at their District. All executive assistants, especially those who assist governing boards and chief executive officers, are invited to attend the Annual EAW.

The Executive Assistants Workshop (EAW) is held each year just prior to the League’s Annual Trustees Conference, typically at the end of April or early May. The two-day workshop is held on Thursday and Friday (with an optional dinner on your own on Thursday evening).

The workshop is attended by Executive Assistants (EAs) who report to Chancellors, Superintendent/Presidents, and/or the District Governing Boards. Often EAs supporting District Legal Counsel, Vice Chancellors, and Vice Presidents also attend the Annual EAW.

Registration for the Annual Executive Assistants Workshop is separate from the Trustees Conference.
