At our recent CCA Spring Conference the CCA Council increased the voting membership of the CCA Board from 23 to 27 members by adding two LGBTQ+ at-large directors, one additional Women’s Rights/Issues at-large director (for a total of two), and one additional Ethnic/Racial Minority at-large director (for a total of two). Since Dorothy Reina was elected to the District K Director position, both Ethnic/Minority At-Large positions are currently vacant. Although the boundaries of “North” and “South” are not defined at present, we expect the elected at-large directors to divide the state between them so as to efficiently serve all 45 CCA locals.
In addition, the geographic Director F-1 position serving the faculty at Chaffey College, Long Beach City College, and the N. Orange CCD is currently vacant.
These vacancies will be up for election at our Fall Conference in October, but I am able to appoint interim directors to serve until then. Interim directors will be asked to attend our June planning meeting (on 11-12 June), the September Board meeting (on 17-18 September), and the October Board meeting (on 15 October). The CCA Board collectively guides CCA''''s advocacy, networking, and training efforts. If you know of a CCA member who might be interested in one of the interim positions noted below, please have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, preferably by 2 June.
Yours in unity,
