State Student Advisory Council!
Yes, Trinidad State campuses now have a voice in what happens throughout the CCCS system.
Congratulations to Danielle Armstrong on receiving Legislative Liasion and Merisa Armstrong for receiving Secretary!
On that note, there will be updates on what is going on with SSAC monthly. For now a little about what they do.
On October 17th and 18th we were able to attend the State Student Advisory Council (SSAC) Conference at the Community College of Denver (CCD). The conference started with a welcoming and opening session from Dr. Nancy McCallin, the Community College System President. We then had breakout sessions and speakers on team building and how to be great leader. Later on that evening was the SACC election of officers and voting. We had to give a 3-5 minute speech followed by 5 minutes of open floor questions. Danielle Armstrong was elected and voted in as the SSAC Legislative Liaison and Merisa Armstrong was elected and voted in as the SSAC Secretary. Saturday morning started with the new officers meeting followed by more breakout sessions including a workshop on building relationships as a leader. We learned many things at this conference and look forward to building student involvement.
