State ACSA - Board of Director Report - Dr. Denise Wickham

Board of Director Report

March, 2018

The ACSA State Board is continuing their work with the Strategic Planning Process.  Input has been sought from Regions and Charters.  The most recent Leadership Assembly included round table discussions and Regions working with other members to provide feedback on statements within the plan. 

Region VII representatives are attending Council and Committee meetings as required.  As the Liaison to the Membership Committee, ACSA is considering looking at the practice of some Charters not contributing to State ACSA Dues.  We will be discussing this in the near future at State ACSA.  I would greatly appreciate feedback/thoughts on the issue.  Regions have differing, but strong opinions regarding these dues. 

Regions are encouraged to continue their recruitment efforts and supporting members in seeking leadership positions within their charters and regions. 

The Board voted to develop an amicus brief to support California Pensions and uphold the California Rule in regards to maintaining pensions as they are when the person is initially hired. 

NASS is continuing to build momentum.  A Federal Advocacy Event will be held in September in the DC area.  There will be a new career center on the website that will be up and running at the end of the month. 

There are two candidates competing for the State ACSA position of Vice-President:  Rob Martinez and Ron Williams.  Both candidates are qualified and eager to serve.  Please do not hesitate to let me know your thoughts. 

It truly is an honor to serve as your Region VII representative to the ACSA State Board.  If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at

October, 2017

ACSA State Board is beginning a new Strategic Planning process that will build on the Association’s success over the past five years and assure it remains vital and relevant for its members for many years to come. Nominees have been submitted for a representative for Region VII in the process. 

ACSA is currently asking for input on the following questions: 

1. What are the top three professional trends that will shape school administration over the next 5-10 years? 

2. What are the top three trends impacting public agencies in general (including public schools) over the next 5-10 years? 

3. What “macro” trends impacting society as a whole will have significant impact on the profession over the next 5-10 years? 

*** If you have comments, please submit your input to 

ACSA’s next State Board meeting will be held on October 13th in Los Angeles. As Region VII’s State Board representative, I want to ensure our voices are heard and I represent our regional needs. I will also be representing us on the State Membership Committee, with our first meeting being held in San Jose on November 1st. Our membership in the Region continues to increase due to our efforts in recruitment. Keep up the great work! 

Thank you for providing me the opportunity to be your representative.
