Education policymakers from across the country today will receive a lesson on the power of united community college trustees, thanks to a panel of speakers from the Show-Me State.
Craig Larson, Ed.D., chair of St. Louis Community College’s Board of Trustees, and five other leaders from Missouri’s community colleges and the Missouri Community College Association will present “Moving the Needle on Trustee Advocacy” at the 44th Annual Association of Community College Trustees Leadership Congress  in Seattle, Wash.

The session will describe the challenges and results of uniting trustees around increased advocacy at the state and national level.
Joining Larson on the panel are Ronald Chesbrough, president of St. Charles Community College; Zora Mulligan, MCCA executive director; William Pundmann, St. Charles Community College trustee; and Ron Wineinger, State Fair Community College trustee. They will describe how a statewide Missouri trustee group went from dormancy to advocacy in support of Missouri’s community colleges and the students they serve.
“Missouri’s community college trustees are an essential part of our advocacy strategy,” Mulligan said. “From testifying before House and Senate appropriations committees to participating in social events for legislators, trustees play a key role in helping Missouri’s community colleges speak with one powerful voice.”
