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).

After much consideration, the NCACCT Executive Board voted this morning to reschedule next week’s NCACCT Law-Legislative Seminar.  We are looking at moving this event to June 2020, still at the Raleigh City Center Marriott.  We will let you know the new dates as soon as possible.

The Board made this decision based on the many uncertainties associated with the coronavirus issue that is causing much concern across the state.   We’ve heard from many of our attendees that they were worried about traveling to a large gathering such as the seminar.  Yesterday, the governor declared a state of emergency.  The health and wellbeing of our trustees, presidents and everyone in the community college family is our top priority.  Furthermore, several speakers had to cancel their participation because of no-travel restrictions imposed by their employers.    With all of those things in mind, we are looking forward to a session later in the summer, and we hope to see you all there.

We are working diligently in the NCACCT office to hammer out the logistics of the new seminar dates and we are working with the college executive assistants regarding next steps to cancel the existing event plans and coordinate with the new dates.
