Summer Conference – July 19

Summer Conference
July 19
Salishan Resort, Gleneden Beach, Oregon
Register for the summer conference

Join us at Salishan again this year for our annual Summer Conference!

Each of us is affiliated, in some way, with a community college. This year, we explore what we mean by “Community” and how we can build and use communities to help us learn, grow, and succeed beyond what we could do as an individual. We will look at: the characteristics of communities; how we can build a team to meet a common goal; and then take a closer look at the AAWCC Mentorship program and the benefits of having support and guidance to reaching a goal.
