Board President Stacey Scarborough thanked several members who concluded their board terms: Erendira Guerera, Asael Picasso, and Ricardo Rivera.
Special thanks to Camilla Rand for seven years of service to the Board. Finally, deep thanks for 29 years of board service to Denise Lee, Deputy Director of Sacramento Employment Training Agency. Thank you for nearly three decades or your time, talent, leadership and support.
October 2019 The board revised and simplified its bylaws to: 1) establish staggered, three-year board terms to balance board recruitment continuity, 2) allocate two director positions for each cluster, 3) create six new at-large board positions, and 4) revise the officer election process.
The board is expanding its committees to strengthen its work. Serving on board committees are an excellent way for Head Start leaders to become more involved in the work of the association. Thought about board service? Committee work is a good first step down that path. Check in with your cluster representatives to learn about opportunities to participate.
