Welcome to the STTACC website!
Dear Community and Technical colleges of Washington State,
WoW! It has been an incredibly great first half of the year and we are going to wrap up the year on a very high note. Changes have been happening and soon STTACC will have a new mission statement, new logo, new look, new website, and new Training Resource Library for classified staff to take advantage of year round.
First, I would like to tell you about some happenings within the committee:
A few months back we bid farewell to Mark Holm who served as STTACC Webmaster for 6 years. He was hired for an exempt position at Evergreen Community College. We miss Mark, his expertise, and dedication to STTACC. We welcome on board Karen Osborn from Olympic College, who was appointed to take on the role of Webmaster. She has been doing a wonderful job and is a great asset to STTACC.
Kathy Arndt was not able to continue as Communications Coordinator so we welcome an amazing lady named Dionne Bonner from Bates Technical College. She is a take-charge person and is working closely with Karen, the Webmaster, to create a new STTACC website that speaks to what STTACC is all about. She has done an awesome job with the STTACC Chat with such short time to complete the winter issue.
A big congratulations goes to Annis Jones, Region E Coordinator, who very recently had a baby boy. His name is Aiden Jamell. He came into the world on 12/6/12 weighing 7lbs 12oz and measured 20 ½”. He was sporting a head of dark hair like you wouldn’t believe! Adorable baby!
And it brings me to the STTACC logo contest. At the time of this STTACC Chat the voting had been complete; deadline was March 1st at 5pm. I hope you voted on the logo design that best represents what STTACC is all about…training for classified staff of Washington State Technical and Community Colleges. The new logo will be presented to you at the annual STTACC Conference held in Big Bend (Aug. 8 & 9). We should be ready (barring any complications) to present the new STTACC website and make it live!
As it states on page 12 of the STTACC Chat, we are in need of your help to build a resource library that can be shared by all Classified Staff of member colleges. We are looking for .pdfs, PowerPoint presentations, videos, etc. that are not in violation of copyright laws to post or link to from the STTACC website. If you have such training resources please email it to email@example.com.
I want to thank the STTACC Committee for their dedicated hard work and support for all the changes that have been going on these past six months and for the next six months to come. Without them this vision would not be happening.
I look forward to seeing you all in August! Put it on your calendar and plan to attend. Talk with your Classified Staff Development Committee (probably named differently at your college) about helping you fund your trip. Carpool and share hotel rooms to save cost.
As always, if you have any comments or questions feel free to email either myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the entire board (email@example.com). We would be happy to connect with you!
All my best and see you in August!!
