The Illinois Community College Trustees Association is celebrating 30 years of providing legislative advocacy and educational opportunities for college board members

Since 1970, the Illinois Community College Trustees Association has provided legislative advocacy and educational opportunities for college boards. Even if you're not a trustee, you can join ICCTA as an Associate Member or a Lifetime Member.

Many Illinois community colleges are adopting board travel restrictions as one way to cope with the lack of Fiscal Year 2016 state funding. In recognition of these constraints, the ICCTA Board of Representatives has cancelled its February 2016 meeting in Washington, D.C. and will hold an in-state meeting in January. Details on the date and format for this meeting will be announced soon.

Pat McGuire (above left); Dr. Karen Hunter Anderson, executive director of the Illinois Community College Board; Eric Wilhelmi, president of the Joliet Junior College Student Government Association; State Sen.
