President's Message

Hello ACSA Region VII Members/Leaders,

We have had a lot going on in ACSA Region VII! Below you will find a few highlights that I would like to share…

R7 Newsletter
Some of you may or may not have received our newsletter, but I’ve attached a copy of our Region’s newsletter. Check it out!NOTE: Special thanks to Alex Shoob at Shoob photography for putting the newsletter together.

General Membership Assembly
We had our first General Membership Assembly (GMA) at Saddle Creek Resort. We had a great guest speaker (Naj from State ACSA) talk about the media/communication as an educational leader. As a reminder, these are for all members to attend. Please see the attached minutes from our meeting. Our next GMA will be held at Dave Wong’s in Stockton on 2/9/16 @4:30pm.

Leadership Assembly Update
A group of us attended the State ACSA Leadership Assembly last week. One thing we will be looking at in the near future is related to our State, Region and Charter bylaws to ensure they start aligning more. As we receive more information, we’ll keep you all of our members updated.

Fall Mini Conference
The Fall Mini Conference was a HUGE success. Thanks to all of those that helped put it together and/or presented….it was OUTSTANDING!

Classified Educational Leaders (CEL) Dinner
Our Region’s CEL Dinner was AWESOME! This year’s event we had coach Jim White from McFarland USA present his story. We had well over 600 people attend. It was great to celebrate all of our classified employees and what they provide for our students, family, staff, schools, and districts!

The State ACSA Leadership Summit is scheduled for November 10-12, 2016 in San Diego. This is an OUTSTANDING summit, so definitely look at attending this event. Here’s a link to the summit if you need more information… http://www.acsa.org/Educational-Services/Conferences/leadership-summit

Women’s Leadership Network Fall Event
This is an outstanding event for women leaders in education (guys can also attend). More information to come, but save the date for November 17, 2016, from 4:30pm – 6:30pm at the Ceres Community Center.

Our Spring Conference committee continues to prepare for our outstanding conference scheduled for May 5-7, 2017 in lovely Lake Tahoe. Mark your calendars for another amazing conference!

Job Announcement
We are looking for a communications/media specialist to overhaul our Region website, maintain the website with regular updates, develop our quarterly newsletter, handle all social media pieces (Facebook and Twitter) and any other duties related to this.
