On Oct. 30, the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) celebrated the work of its industry advisory members by hosting them at a special appreciation event held at the Handlery Hotel. More than 100 committee members and staff attended the event, which featured a keynote by SDWP CEO Peter Callstrom. The SDCCD values the efforts of its dedicated industry partners who help them to better serve students and set them on a course for successful careers.

Peter discussed the work of SDWP and how the organization has been partnering closely with the SDCCD, including projects like the San Diego Workforce Conference that was held on Oct. 2, which discussed the five priority sector reports that were created in this new collaborative effort.  “It was an honor to keynote this event and to share the new and ongoing collaborative work of the SDCCD and SDWP,” commented Callstrom.

The San Diego Community College District is governed by its five-member, locally elected Board of Trustees and three student members serving on a rotating basis. Shared governance activities involve faculty, students and staff in the development of solutions to key policy and budget issues. The five trustees are elected in even-numbered years to four-year terms by the voters of San Diego. The Chancellor, the District’s chief executive officer, is responsible for carrying out the policies approved by the Board of Trustees.
