2023 Effective Trusteeship & Board Chair Workshops
It's not easy being an effective trustee or board chair. The League is pleased to offer a workshop for both trustees and board chairs to learn the duties expected of board members of California's Community Colleges. State leaders and experienced trustees will provide comprehensive information on the knowledge and skills necessary to be an effective trustee.
NOTE: These workshops are held in conjunction with the Annual Legislative Conference, January 29-30, 2023. Separate registration is required.
Who Should Attend
All trustees should attend the Effective Trusteeship Workshop. There will be ample opportunity to discuss questions and topics surrounding trustee board service. Student trustees and CEOs will also gain valuable knowledge from this workshop.
The Board Chair Workshop is designed for board presidents, vice presidents, and CEOs. Being a board president is an important leadership role. The chair runs board meetings, fosters teamwork, represents the board, and works closely with the CEO.
The Board Chair Handbook will be distributed. Board presidents and vice presidents are encouraged to attend the Effective Trusteeship Workshop with their new trustees and participate in the Board Chair Workshop in the afternoon.
- Board Chair Roles

Please note this event will be held in person and registration will open in November 2022.

Excellence in Trusteeship Program Competencies
The Effective Trusteeship & Board Chair Workshops are opportunities for trustees enrolled in the League’s Excellence in Trusteeship Program (ETP) to complete work that applies toward the fulfillment of the program's competency requirements.
ETP is designed to facilitate the ongoing education of trustees at a California Community College by providing a solid foundation for effective board governance. We proudly offer the only certificate program in the state for community college trusteeship. The program fulfills the WASC Accreditation Standard IV.C.9 which requires governing boards to participate in “an ongoing training program for board development including new member orientation.”
