Message from ACCA President
The ACCA Executive Committee met in February to plan the activities for this year which will culminate in the annual conference at the Sheraton Birmingham Hotel/Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex, November 22-24. During the February meeting, we wore our 2020 glasses as we focused on what was important to us collectively as a system, and we decided it is the experience the student has at our institutions. The Committee selected Sharpening Our Focus on the Student Experience as the theme for 2020. Little did we know what challenges each of our colleges would face the following month as our students approached spring break. Our spring ACCA Journal gives insight into some of the transformations we have made in order to deliver instruction as well as support services to both students and communities from our respective campuses.
Many of you may not feel comfortable getting out of your house right now, much less attending a conference. However, we are looking toward a brighter and better future and continue to plan for the November meeting. The proposal process is open and you are encouraged to submit a presentation for consideration. By attending the conference, you will have the opportunity to network with other employees from across our state to share experiences, discuss ideas, and learn about topics that may help you in your daily work. Without your participation, the conference will not be as strong since you are a part of what makes the Alabama Community College System so important.
I hope that everyone stays safe and healthy throughout the summer and that we can look forward to a return to a more normal life in the fall.
Ben Jordan, ACCA President
The health and safety of our community and event attendees is our highest priority. As we continue to monitor guidance related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the System Office, we are committed to taking appropriate precautions to provide a safe environment that does not place our ACCA committee members or event attendees at undue risk. At this time, the CDC has not indicated that organizations in the United States should consider postponing or canceling events that occur in November. Given the evolving nature of COVID-19, we will continue to closely monitor developments. Should we receive information that would prompt us to make adjustments to our event schedule, we will immediately notify all impacted parties through email and post updates on our website.
