PSA: Student Senate Update and Legal Response from Marc Le Forestier
The SSCCC is currently in the beginning stages of developing its new Strategic Plan.
The Student Senate for California Community College’s Strategic Plan will develop a one-year plan for July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018 and a five-year plan for July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2022
Strategic planning is important for any successful organization, as it provides clear direction and stability and ensures that the organization’s leadership is responsive to its constituents.
In order to ensure the goals set are reflective of the needs of the Student Senate for California Community Colleges, the process will take input from students across the system to gather multiple points of view.
The Strategic Plan Ad-Hoc Committee will be composed of eight (8) voting members: the SSCCC Executive Vice President, one Regional Affairs Director, one System Affairs Director, one Legislative Affairs Director, one Regional Treasurer (or their equivalent), one Regional Communications Officer (or their equivalent), one local Associated Student Organization President, and one local Student Trustee.
Of the Directors:
one must be from Regions 1-4,
one must be from Regions 5-6,
and one must be from Regions 7-10
The Strategic Plan Ad-Hoc Committee shall be appointed by the SSCCC President based on submitted Strategic Plan Ad-Hoc Committee Membership Applications with a simple-majority confirmation from the SSCCC Board of Directors, shall be chaired by the SSCCC President, and be vice chaired by the SSCCC Executive Vice President.
The Strategic Plan Ad-Hoc Committee shall present its final draft at the Spring 2017 General Assembly to be voted on by the Delegate Assembly and shall require a two-thirds (⅔) majority vote for adoption to take effect thirty (30) days after approval.
