CCBA'S 20TH ANNIVERSARY CONFERENCE 2020 RECAP

The CCBA celebrated its 20th annual national conference in Seattle, Washington, February 28 through March 1, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Seattle with an impressive program of guest speakers, workshops and milestones… including a record-setting 200 community college advocates representing 21 states and two international institutions.

“These numbers not only speak volumes about the progress the CCBA is making in advancing the organization,” says President Dr. Angela Kersenbrock, “but they also mean we are extending the reach of our mission and making a broader impact in re-defining the state of higher education by offering more students access to affordable, convenient baccalaureate degree programs and, ultimately, facilitating the close of the nation’s racial, ethnic and economic gaps.”
