A Note from Emily

Thanks to everyone who was able to join us at this week’s virtual IACCT Conference. Materials and videos from the presentations will be made available in the coming weeks where possible. In the meantime, one session is available now! Check out the “15 Ideas from 15 Colleges” video. And, of course, Save the Date for next year’s event July 21-22 at Western Iowa Tech Community College in Sioux City.

At this week’s event, we also announced this year’s award winners. Visit our web site to learn who they are and then join our Facebook event to offer your congratulations for their impact on students and communities.

At Wednesday’s annual membership meeting, statewide Trustees approved our 2022 Legislative Platform. Read about it here. In addition to setting state priorities, this year we added federal priorities and Guiding Principles. The Principles will be reviewed each year and will serve as the foundation on which legislative priorities are built and decisions are made, they are:

  • One Voice

  • Local Governance

  • Bipartisan Collaboration

  • Quality Workforce Training

  • Equitable Education

  • Strong Education Partnerships

  • Local Elections

  • Safe and Secure Campus Environments

We look forward to working with all of you to uphold our values and achieve our priorities this coming year.
