Governance Committee

The Governance Committee maintains the CCA governance documents: the Bylaws, the Standing Rules, and the Elections Manual.  This is accomplished by reviewing and revising, as needed, all governing documents of CCA at least once every five years,  considering all proposed amendments and changes to CCA’s governing documents, and reviewing the governance structure and geographical districts of CCA every three years for adherence to CCA, CTA, and NEA policies.  The Governance Committee also brings forth all revisions and suggested changes to the Board and Councils and advises these bodies of any compliance issues. The Committee may conduct hearings on any proposed changes to governing documents.

Members: Patrick Mitchell (Chair), Steven Estrada, Shaaron Vogel, Evangeline Matthews, Susan Pynes

Elections Committee

The Elections Credential Committee’s primary function is to conduct and monitor all elections for the Community College Association (CCA). The members of this committee are charged with the responsibility of seeing that in all elections, every member has a voice and access to the election process and procedures. That each member is guaranteed the right to have a voice in the organization and that the organization maintains the one person, one vote and the basic principles of the nomination process set down by the CTA and NEA.

The members of the Elections Credential Committee are at all times impartial and operate in the best interest of the CCA, CTA and NEA. To ensure the integrity of the process the members of the Committee review the elections process and proceedings on a regular basis and make suggested modifications to the nomination and election process to the CCA Governance Committee for review and action when it is appropriate.

Faculty Equity and Diversity Committee

The Faculty Equity and Diversity Committee addresses issues regarding ethnic, gender, age, economic and cultural equity within CCA. The FEDC creates conference sessions and stand-alone workshops. From member nominations, we select the annual winners of the Faculty Equity and Diversity Awards for outstanding service on behalf of community college faculty: The GBLT Award in honor of David Sanchez, The Ethnic Minority Award in honor of Mary Ann Pacheco, and The Part-time Faculty Award in honor of David Milroy. Our main goal is to educate our members in issues of diversity by celebrating our differences while embracing our commonalities and unity. We believe a strong union represents every member.
