Build on your expertise, enhance your understanding of governance, and strengthen your role as a board professional. Held in conjunction with AGB’s National Conference on Trusteeship, the Workshop for Board Professionals is open to those professionals in higher education who staff boards of trustees in roles such as assistant to the president, general counsel, secretary of the college, assistant secretary of the board, vice president, and chief of staff.
A planning committee of board professionals—led by committee chair Carrie Warren formerly of Metropolitan State University of Denver and vice chairs Denise Nelson Nash of Scripps College and Tina Holloway of the University of Texas System—developed the program. This year, for the first time, the committee solicited proposals for sessions. The program is comprised of concurrent and plenary sessions, roundtables, reception, and various social networking activities to ensure that the program delivers support, information, and professional growth to those in the profession.

CATESOL San Diego Regional Conference
The spring 2018 San Diego Regional CATESOL conference will take place on Saturday, April 21 at the Educational Cultural Complex (ECC) at 4343 Ocean View Blvd., San Diego, CA. This year‘s theme is Surfing the Waves of Change in Challenging Times . Changes in our ESL programs seem to be as predictable as waves at our local beaches. Just as a surfer makes last minute adjustments to each wave, so do classroom teachers adjust to changes that impact the educational environment (e.g. student diversity, course and curriculum changes, available funding resources, immigration policies, or state and national standards).
Plan on joining our San Diego surfing safari on April 21 to catch a wave of ideas from multiple concurrent presentations during four sessions throughout the day and soak in the wisdom of plenary speaker, Jayme Adelson-Goldstein, ESL teacher-trainer, consultant, and author extraordinaire.
