NCCET President's Message
2017-2018 NCCET President
Greetings to all of our members, both current and eventual:
I am truly honored and humbled to be your 2017-2018 NCCET President. The ability of the organization to achieve its mission of being the catalyst for innovative solutions to promote excellence in continuing education and workforce training is enhanced by the strength of the board. I encourage you to view your board members and reach out to any of us regarding our focus for the membership.
Established in 1969, NCCET boasts over 1600 members from 42 states, and 203 institutions, from the U.S., Canada, British Virgin Islands, and globally. We are your premier organization for networking, professional development, and best practices in workforce, economic development, and community education.
As an affiliate council of AACC we'll ensure your voice is heard at the national level. Our board leadership represents you through AACC's Coalition of Affiliate Councils and the Workforce Development Council. NCCET will bring to the forefront the pertinent issues and challenges our membership faces. We will not only work diligently to ensure that our membership’s issues and concerns are part of the conversation but our proposed solutions are also discussed.
Both Workforce training and continuing education have become a critical component to maintaining a competitive workforce and personal enrichment. It can be vital to the individual employee as well as the business as a whole. Creating solutions to achieve the training needed forces us to become innovative with the delivery of the training required. NCCET is committed to being the Premier Resource for Continuing Education & Training Professionals. In other words we are here for YOU!!
The NCCET Annual Conference is our flagship event. This year the conference will be held in the great city of Savannah Ga, September 25 - 27th. The concept of non-credit to credit and leadership as it relates to the delivery of workforce training is the focus.
Again, NCCET is here for YOU!! Please feel free to reach out to our executive director, Jennifer Starkey or any of the board members if you have questions.
I look forward to seeing you in Savannah and appreciate the opportunity to serve.
President, NCCET Board
