Women of TCC:

 

The TCC Chapter of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) is preparing for another great learning, networking, and developing year and we want you to be a part of it! The American Association for Women in Community Colleges changes women’s lives through education, service and leadership development. By developing a national conversation for women leaders, AAWCC strives to bring awareness, advocate for, and take steps to further position these women in their leadership roles. AAWCC works to spotlight the value that these women leaders bring throughout community colleges.

 

During our inaugural year, the TCC Chapter of the AAWCC committed to focus our efforts in three areas: Professional Development, Coaching & Mentoring, and Community Service. During the spring of 2015, we hosted a dynamic Women’s Leadership Forum, raised awareness and donations for the H.E.R. Shelter, and held a social networking event. For the 2015-2016 year, we have plans to continue our focus and expand our reach to more women, development, causes, and opportunities. For more information on our past events and meeting minutes, please visit our website at: http://web.tcc.edu/aawcc/.

 

The TCC Chapter of the AAWCC Chapter is holding our membership drive for the 2015-2016 year from September 14-25, 2015.  Membership dues are $50 and includes your national membership in the AAWCC and participation in all AAWCC news, events, and offerings. The TCC-AAWCC Treasurer, Latesha Johnson, will collect the membership application, POR Form (if using professional development funds), and/or checks or money orders from September 14-25, 2015. See the attached membership application for full details on dues payment.

 

We encourage your consideration of this professional and personal development organization and look forward to you joining us in the AAWCC!

Boots to Blackboard

 

On Wednesday, November 18, 2015, the TCC Chapter of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) hosted the ‘Boots to Blackboard’ event honoring our veterans and their families. The event, held at the Virginia Beach Campus, highlighted faculty, staff, and students who have served in each branch of the military. Each branch panelist briefly shared his/her experience and how the transition from the military to TCC has impacted their life. Additionally, we used the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) model to tap into the experiences and needs of the panelists and the audience to gauge insight for ways to improve and build upon the services and support provided by the College.

The American Association of Women in Community Colleges changes women’s lives through education, service and leadership development. By developing a national conversation for women leaders, AAWCC strives to bring awareness, advocate for, and take steps to further position these women in their leadership roles. AAWCC works to spotlight the value that these women leaders bring throughout community colleges.

 

You may recall that our president, Dr. Edna Baehre-Kolovani, is the 2013 recipient of the AAWCC’s Mildred Bulpitt Woman of the Year Award in recognition of outstanding leadership and mentorship to provide opportunities for women in community colleges. Dr. Baehre-Kolovani has been integral in reestablishing the TCC chapter and setting a pathway for professionalism, development, and opportunities for women employees of TCC and the community.

 

We are looking forward to your participation in this professional association and the impact the TCC Chapter of AAWCC will have on the College and beyond. Please email us at AAWCC@tcc.edu. For more information on AAWCC go to: http://www.aawccnatl.org/
