Denise R. Chachere, a member of the
St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees, has been elected member at-large of the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) Board of Directors.

The ACCT Board of Directors establishes policies that supervise, control and direct the association’s affairs. Chachere’s three-year term ends in October 2011.

"I believe ACCT has the right focus on legislative advocacy and improving governance practices by community college trustees," Chachere said. "My personal interest in leadership, service and advancing the missions of community colleges will be of benefit to ACCT as we address legislative advocacy issues and governance practices. I view this opportunity as a privilege."

Chachere was elected to a six-year term on the STLCC Board of Trustees in 2005. She twice was elected to serve as board vice chair. She has served two years as a member of the STLCC Foundation Board of Directors. Nationally, Chachere has served on the ACCT Public Policy, Bylaws & Governance, and Finance/Audit committees. She also serves as the state of Missouri’s liaison to ACCT, and actively advocates for higher education in Jefferson City and Washington, D.C.

Chachere is president of her own company, Employee Assets LLC, and has more than 10 years of experience leading a strategic human resource management consulting business after a successful career in practicing and teaching the discipline. She is a past president of the Human Resource Management Association of St. Louis, and served five years on the Saint Louis University Board of Trustees’ Human Resource Management Standing Committee.

ACCT is a non-profit educational organization of governing boards, representing more than 6,500 elected and appointed trustees who govern more than 1,200 community, technical and junior colleges in the United States. These trustees are community professionals, business officials, public policy leaders and leading citizens who offer their time and talent to serve on the governing boards of this century's most innovative higher education institutions. Their decisions affect more than 11 million students annually.
