I've been active over the past year attending CTA/CCA Conferences, including the President's Conference and local Service Center meetings, which have given me tools to help our local to become more effective. I have attended every Board of Trustees meeting to stay current on Shasta College issues and to represent faculty. I will continue to encourage your officers to participate in training and leadership opportunities. We will keep working hard to improve our membership accounting and management processes. I'm confident with the officers that have been elected, we will be able to continue moving in a positive direction.
