Leadership challenges bringexcitement and rewardsTand stepping upto the leadership plate brings with it a numberof challenges. A challenge that I face daily isfinding the time for personal reflection. Taking morethan a few minutes to think about my day, the choices Imade and their impact on others, and the lessons I mayhave learned seems like a luxury my busy schedulewill not allow. However, it is absolutely necessary notjust for personal sanity but in order to continue to bean effective leader on my college campus and for 4CS.VOLUME 6, NUMBER 1NOVEMBER 2005CONNECTIONSAKING ON MORE RESPONSIBILITYA newsletter for theClassified Senatesof theCalifornia Community Colleges4CS ConnectionsJulie Whiting4CS PresidentIn Daily Disciplines of Leadership, Douglas Reeves outlines five questionsto ask yourself and recommends keeping a leadership journal as a way ofencouraging “structured reflection”.

Governance Organization SpotlightBoardTofGovernorsHE BOARD OF GOVERNORS of the CaliforniaCommunity Colleges sets policy andprovides guidance for the 72 districtsand 109 colleges which constitute the system.The 17-member Board, appointed by the stateʼsGovernor, formally interacts with state andfederal officials and other state organizations.The Board of Governors selects a Chancellor forthe system. The Chancellor, through a formalprocess of consultation, brings recommendationsto the Board, which has the legislatively grantedauthority to develop and implement policy for thecolleges. Additionally, each of the 72 communitycollege districts in the state has a locally-electedBoard of Trustees, responsive to local communityneeds and charged with the operations of the localcolleges. The governance system of the CaliforniaCommunity Colleges is one which uses processesof “shared governance.” In March 1988, theBoard of Governors adopted a process knownas”consultation,” through which a council composedof representatives of selected community collegeinstitutional and organizational groups, assist indevelopment and recommendation of policy to theChancellor and Board of Governors.George T. CaplanPresidentKay AlbianiVice PresidentKristin JacksonFranklinBarbara GothardBenita D. HaleyLance T.

Being able to provide inputfrom the classified perspective hasbeen both productive and rewarding. Although we, as classified staff, havemany different jobs and often work in thebackground, the services we provide areessential to the educational experienceand success of our community collegestudents.”4CS ConnectionsLou MonvilleMargaret R.

Our area has been short of regionrepresentatives and it has been our local senateʼs hope to change that. However, because ofthe leadership experiences offered at the Classified Leadership Institute and the cohesive relationshipconnecting our local senates to the state executive board, there are now more representatives fromthe south than ever before. In addition, one benefit of participating on the executive board is that ourcampus can host one of the state executive board meetings! Grossmont College in El Cajon will be the location for theMarch California Community Colleges Classified Senate executive board meeting.When I returned home from the conference, I was energized and hopeful that I could connect with the San Diego areaclassified senate leaders. Immediately the contact became a springboard to meet Desiree VanSaan, the Classified Senatepresident from San Diego City College. She instituted her groupʼs first ʻClassified Convocationʼ. She invited me to shareinformation about 4CS, encourage the staff, and build enthusiasm for their organization. The event was also an opportunityto raise funds with a 50-50 drawing, and a chance for me to encourage attendance at the next Classified Leadership Institute.I was equally excited when Wanda Maxwell, senate president-elect from Southwestern College, responded with a requestto attend their first ʻClassified Leaders Retreatʼ. On both occasions I spoke to the group about how leadership changes ourenvironments, and how the students will also be inspired by courageous campus employees.There is no greater compliment than when a student says “I want to do what you do for a living ” The secret is, it may notnecessarily be the tasks that we do, but how we execute them with a joyful spirit, how we collaborate with so many otherson our campuses, and how we strive for service that extends beyond ʻjust getting the job doneʼ. When students see thesethings; energy, collegiality, and service-oriented attitudes, they too will execute their schoolwork and professional careerswith similar qualities that will extend to our community. One person can make a difference.64CS ConnectionsNovember 2005
