FACCC/ASCCC Legislative & Advocacy Training Webinar

FACCC/ASCCC Legislative and Advocacy Training Webinar Series

 

Over the past decade, the California Community Colleges have undergone dramatic changes resulting from legislative reform and the budget process. While the legislation is well-intended, it may not address the problem it is trying to fix, and in fact, legislative changes often have unintended consequences affecting student success. As future legislation is imminent, it is essential for faculty to be strong advocates at the state level with a fundamental understanding of policy development.

This webinar will cover the role of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office, various system partners, and outside advocacy groups and how they influence state-level policy development. The webinar will begin with the nuts and bolts of the state legislative process, provide assistance in following and tracking legislation, and then focus on sharing the voice of faculty with confidence to connect with local state-wide representatives effectively. 

Join your Academic Senate for California Community Colleges and Faculty Association of California Community Colleges colleagues to learn about how to advocate on behalf of faculty and students at the state level.
