The Annual Meeting has recently been held in late May or early June. The Association may also elect to hold a winter meeting in Arizona to continue professional development, mentorship, and conduct formal business.
The 2020 Meeting is scheduled for June 4-6, 2020 in Denver, CO.
The MSACC meeting is designed to allow community college presidents from the mountain states region the opportunity to discuss and analyze issues facing higher education today. It offers time for college presidents to receive advice and mentorship while discussing campus initiatives and concerns and seek feedback from colleagues addressing the same initiatives and concerns. Also, training sessions are offered to help college presidents navigate issues such as board relations, contracts, succession planning, community relations, fundraising, leadership development, human resources, crisis management, athletics, and much more. A formal business meeting is conducted and officers are elected, future topic items are identified, and the financial report is reviewed and approved. Overall, this experience for college presidents has been rewarding, educational, and therapeutic in nature.
When I was a new president at a small rural community college, I found the annual meeting to be extremely beneficial to my development as a leader and offered a network of skilled and knowledgeable colleagues
