In 2018, the Alabama Community College Association is celebrating its 60th year of providing quality professional development and training opportunities to employees of the Alabama Community College System. With any milestone, we have a chance to look back at accomplishments and examine the future of our association and the college system.

Through the outstanding work at our ACCS colleges and the dedication shown from employees, we have been able to transform the lives of many students by providing a variety of educational experiences. Whether it was through an academic program, adult education, or workforce development, we have had a positive impact on Alabama's future.  This system wide commitment to improving the lives of Alabama citizens through education and training has cemented learning opportunities that have lasted a lifetime. 

However, as an employee in the Alabama Community College System, we can't be satisfied with where we have been. In order for students to compete in tomorrow's world where technological changes occur on a daily basis, we must be willing to re-think how we have always done things. With many new initiatives being discussed and implemented by the System, we must be willing to accept change and learn new skills in order to move our colleges forward.  Together, we can make the Alabama Community College System even better.

I would like to invite you to join us for the 2018 ACCA Conference, November 18-20, at the Mobile Convention Center and Renaissance Mobile Riverview Plaza Hotel.

Russell Howton, Ph. D. 
ACCA President
