Registration is now open for the 2020 NCACCT Law-Legislative Seminar, to be held March 18-20 in downtown Raleigh!
More than 250 community college leaders are expected gather from across the state to learn more about: cybersecurity and what our colleges need to consider if a cyberattack occurs; the upcoming legislative short session; legal matters affecting our colleges; and ways that community college partners can work together to impact public policy. Speakers will include Stephen Pruitt, president of the Southern Region Education Board; Cecilia Holden, president/CEO of myFutureNC; and Bob Joyce, professor of public law and government with the UNC School of Government. The timing of the seminar will also be on the heels of the North Carolina primary election, so we’ll be inviting Governor Roy Cooper to speak as well as the Republican candidate for governor, once the election results are in. The seminar will also be an opportunity for trustees, presidents, state board members and others to network, build relationships and gain information from each other. State-mandated training will be available for new and reappointed trustees, plus there will be sessions that will benefit all trustees with varying lengths of service. Ethics training will be led by the Ethics Commission; and there will be a session for community college attorneys highlighting timely legal issues (a session that all trustees can attend).
