President's Message

I am both honored and privileged to be representing our ACSA Region 7 membership as your president.  I am very excited about the great opportunity we have this coming year as an organization.  Under the leadership and guidance of our current State Executive Director Wes Smith and California State President Lisa Gonzales, ACSA’s voice has never been louder. 

In alignment with state ACSA, Region 7 goals this school year are “Leading Beyond Limits”.  Our continued growth and learning will pay huge dividends for the 260,000 students in Region 7.  We want to “lead” local educators and students covering our five counties of Amador, Calaveras, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tuolumne. We currently have close to 700 ACSA “leaders” in Region 7 and at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year we have the potential to add more to our association. In order to serve our students and grow our membership, we will continue to offer outstanding leadership and networking opportunities for our region members.

Throughout the 2017-18 school year both state ACSA and Region 7 will be offering outstanding “inspirational” events, trainings, academies, and conferences for our members. Region 7 will be offering a fall mini conference, women’s leadership summit, spring conference, professional development events, General Membership Assemblies, and the CEL (Classified Educational Leaders) dinner. I encourage our membership to participate in these events and I urge you to bring another administrator with you as a way to empower and promote our future leadership.

Our 2017-2018 goals include increasing our current membership, empowering our membership to be both charter and region leaders, increasing attendance at General Membership Assemblies, and continue to serve our students in California.  As leaders, I want to encourage you to continue bringing 100% of your passion, energy, and enthusiasm to our students.  The students of California deserve the very best and it all starts with us, as the leaders in our classrooms, schools, and districts.

At a recent Harvard graduation, Amy Poehler told the graduates to “Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”  I cannot think of a better testament for ACSA.  Involvement in ACSA will challenge you and truly change your life.   

Have a wonderful year!  I look forward to seeing you at our future events!

Greg Leland, ACSA Region 7 President
