Welcome to a new year in another meaningful season of work. Among the many priorities clamoring for your attention, please note the following. The April AACC annual meeting is just around the corner and the 2023 Board of Directors leadership ballot has been emailed to your email.
Voting is an important opportunity to make a difference. I urge you to do so and I recommend that you consider supporting the following candidates: Patricia Sims, President of Drake State Community and Technical College in Alabama, and Jermaine Whirl, President of Augusta Technical College in Georgia.
For those planning to attend AACC Conference in Denver, Colorado, make every effort to participate in the PRT 40th Reunion Year reception on Saturday, April 1, and our Breakfast Business meeting on Monday, April 3. More details to follow.
Make time to read the entire newsletter for dates and details related to the Lakin Institute and the Men of Color Student Leadership Conference scheduled for Fall 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri.
And finally, as the world celebrates Black History Month, I join you 24/7, 365 days a year in a continuous celebration and appreciation for the men and women who have gone on before us. Building on the firm foundation of those pioneers, may we to be remembered for our commitment, diligence and determination to help achieve opportunity for all.
Be strong, be proud, and carry on.
