Accreditation Liaison Officers (ALOs) are invited to participate in the spring 2014 ALO Workshop being offered in southern California. The ACCJC sponsors this Workshop for new and experienced ALOs at member institutions. Attendance is free and lunch will be provided. The invitation is for ALOs or their designees only.
Invitations are sent to ALOs at member institutions in geographic proximity to workshop sites. The spring 2014 workshop is planned for:
* Friday, February 21, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Rio Hondo College
The goal of the workshop is to present leadership and communication responsibilities required of ALOs in promoting educational quality and institutional effectiveness. The first part of the workshop will be a briefing on recent developments at ACCJC and at the federal level, such as changes to the ACCJC Accreditation Standards, Commission manuals, the ALO Discussion Board, the “Accreditation Basics” online course, and an update on changes in federal legislation that will affect accreditors and institutions of higher education.
The second part of the workshop will be training for ALOs who are new in their roles. Experienced ALOs are invited to share what they have learned, and all ALOs are encouraged to ask questions in a “lessons learned from the field” segment when expectations and challenges will be discussed.
