Hello Colleagues,

I hope you have had a great break and took time to rest, recharge, and renew over the holiday break.

In this editions ping, there are a number of updates. I hope you will take time to open all of the links, but I will highlight a few:

Perils of Wisdom—finding balance in retirement

Highlights from our Institutes

Strategic Plan Spotlight—Advocacy

During our last business meeting, the membership voted for us to move forward with pursuing the 501C3 status. With a 501C3 designation, the PRT will be able to pursue funding to support the strategies within our strategic plan. Speaking of our strategic plan, Pushing Forward to 2024, there is a lot of activity occurring and subcommittees have formed. If you want to become involved, it is not too late! The following captains can be contacted directly if you wish to become engaged:

Joe Seabrooks: Advocacy jseabrooks@dcccd.edu

Marshall Washington: Professional Development lmwashington@kvcc.edu

Kimberly Beatty: Organizational Capacity kbeatty@mcckc.edu

Larry Johnson: Membership Engagement Larry.Johnson@guttman.cuny.edu

Walt Tobin: Finance Committee wtobin@octech.edu

Quintin Bullock: Men of Color Student Leadership Institute qbullock@ccac.edu

In 2022, we will begin to introduce additional brand enhancements and professional development engagement opportunities. In the spring, we are planning to offer a webinar and podcast series with a focus on current issues impacting (Black) CEO leadership. Stay tuned for more information on these series in February.

Also, don’t forget to stay current with your membership dues. Beginning January 2022, many professional development activities and informational items will be reserved for members only. I understand how our schedules can often impede our intentions; given this reality, I thought I would provide a friendly reminder.

The PRT is also planning for the AACC convention. We plan to host two events, a social event and our annual business meeting. An announcement with specific details will follow in late February. The PRT did submit a proposal; stay tuned on it’s acceptance.

Finally, the holiday season and winter break always provides time to reflect; my key reflection, I am thankful. I am thankful to have an opportunity to work with all of you in advancing the mission of the PRT. I am thankful for all of you who wish to support this work as well.

Have a great spring semester!
