The Community, State and Technical College Liaisons provide a single point of contact from each of the colleges, who serve to strengthen and improve communication with the Coordinating Board. The Liaisons will receive all communication from the Coordinating Board, which will lead to improved efficiency and better coordination of information. The Liaisons are critical to the Coordinating Board's communication efforts, as they will effectively and appropriately distribute information within their colleges.
Each institution identified a single point of contact to serve as the official liaison to the Coordinating Board. The liaisons attend meetings held by the Coordinating Board staff to better understand the role and responsibilities of the Coordinating Board. In early November 2012, the Coordinating Board staff provided the liaisons with a two day program, which included an overview of the Coordinating Board, its staff, functions, procedures, and operations. The liaisons were provided with electronic materials for each presentation and may use the information for their reference and distribution to other administrators and faculty on their campuses. During the Coordinating Board training, the liaisons will be introduced to individual staff members responsible for specific areas and issues, so that as questions arise, the liaisons will be easily able to identify to best Coordinating Board point of contact to address the issue.
The Coordinating Board understands that including the liaisons on communications with the community college will provide a consistent point of contact and as a result will improve the dissemination of critical information in a timely manner and ensure that information will be routed to the appropriate individuals.
The Coordinating Board's goal is to have a liaison from each of the community college districts. However, selection of a liaison is not mandatory. Each community college determines who the most appropriate person to serve as the liaison should be for their campus or campuses.
Institutions were invited to submit their selected liaison's contact information to the Coordinating Board over the summer and may provide updates as needed.
