June 18-21: Study topics in-depth at summer school
The CFT Union Summer School equips local leaders with the powerful skills to organize successful campaigns to build high-quality public education, involve members in union activities, increase the political voice of educators and establish excellent representation and collective bargaining programs.
The program is geared for emerging and veteran local leaders who want to take their skills to the next level. The week is filled with rigorous workshops, motivated and skilled trainers, and applied learning. There is also the opportunity to share best practices with local leaders from across the state and to find inspiration in one another’s work. Join us for this exciting week-long, union leadership program!
Summer School will take place at UCLA's Luskin Conference Center. This year we are offering four courses, including one new class. In addition, we are offering a new two-day course for union teams. There are also evening workshops.
Training includes a new two-day course for local union teams, June 20-21 (Wednesday mid-morning through Thursday evening).

Designing, Implementing, and Facilitating Faculty Learning Communities
Evidence shows that Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) provide effective “deep learning” that encourages and supports faculty to investigate and engage new (to them) methods of teaching and to assess resulting change in student learning. Implementation Science confirms that FLCs provide the most effective way to implement and sustain teaching and learning innovations for faculty and staff. This institute will guide faculty and administrators interested in FLCs through issues and examples of the design, implementation, and facilitation of FLCs.
The purpose of the California Community College Student Affairs Association shall be to: promote and advance public two-year post-secondary education and to bring the members together in an association for mutual benefit; to stimulate effective working relationships in the field; to strengthen professional status by establishing criteria for professional training; to undertake research and study pertinent to the profession and other methods for exchange of ideas and information, whereby all persons engaged as Student Affairs professionals in California Community Colleges may be aided in the growth and success of student programs and services within their respective colleges.
There are three levels of Advisor Certification. The first two levels are Certified Advisor I and II. The third level is designated as Master Advisor. The requirements for levels I and II each include the satisfactory completion of a total of fifteen (15) clock hours. The requirements for Master Advisor include the satisfactory completion a total of 15 clock hours. Each course requires a minimum of two hours and ten minutes of seat time (the equivalent of 2.5 hours of clock time) with 50 minutes equated to one hour. Six required courses must be completed for Certified Advisor I. Six additional courses, four core courses and two optional courses, are required and must be completed for Certified Advisor II.
All of the Advisor I and II requirements plus an additional eight (8) courses — four required and four optional — plus the teaching of two (2) Advisor courses or four (4) student courses — must be completed to be certified as a Master Advisor. Courses taught do not necessarily need to be taught at only ASACC conferences. Other presentations will be considered on a case by case basis for awarding credit for this requirement.
