ACCCA, The Association of California Community College Administrators, is the foremost member-supported professional organization for administrators and managers of California's 112 community college campuses. As you will see when you tour this site, ACCCA seeks to provide its members with services, benefits, products and programs that will enhance their professional lives.
Established in 1975, ACCCA is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of administrator's rights. ACCCA provides insurance benefits, publications, professional development opportunities, business partnerships, advocacy, counseling and assistance to over 1,000 full time administrators, associate members, affiliates and corporate members. At ACCCA, a small administrative staff headquartered in Sacramento, selected independent contractors and a vast workforce of volunteers carry out the work of the Association. Our volunteers are the board, commission, committee members and our campus reps.
The ACCCA Board is a 16 to 18 member governing body whose members are elected by the membership to three-year staggered terms. The Board operates on the recommendations of the Executive Committee-a standing committee of the Board who are its officers-the President, President-Elect, 2nd Vice President and Immediate Past President. The administrative functions of the Association are carried out by the Director of Operations and staff. The Director is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Association including state and federal reporting, monitoring personnel and the work of ACCCA's paid contractors, keeping accurate membership records and preparing reports for the board's review. This work requires the Director to liaison with each of the standing committees and the six working commissions of the Board on a constant basis.
ACCCA, the premier association for community college administrators in California, is recognized for providing both leadership excellence and leadership development. ACCCA is dedicated to providing professional education, training and development opportunities for new and continuing community college administrators and building partnerships with business, education and government agencies to achieve those opportunities. ACCCA takes an active role in the development and advocacy of public policy and legislation for the benefit of the California community college system and its administrative leadership team.
