ECA 2023 - Community College IG Conference Updates

Hello, all.

The Spring semester always moves so quickly, and ECA will be here before we know it (just 6 weeks!)! This year, Planner Jennifer Waldeck says we have 192 sessions, including the Basic Course Conference and several special events. Some of the Convention topics this year will focus on deliberating, brainstorming, and charting the future of our association/convention. 

As you prepare your schedule for ECA’s annual convention, I encourage you to add these Community College Interest Group (CCIG) sessions to your calendar; hopefully you’ve already added the GIFTS programming, which Kerry sent out a few days ago, to your calendar. The date, times, titles, and locations for the CCIG are provided below.
