Fall Flex Days 2009 were a great success, with high attendance reported at all events. More than 400 faculty, administrators and staff attended Convocation Day, as President Beebe welcomed us all back to the new academic year.  Speakers included Chancellor Constance Carroll, along with Rich Grosch, Esther Matthew, Rita Avila and Jim Mahler. VP Brian Ellison and Accreditation Team Leaders Ray Ramirez and Marne Foster brought everyone up to speed on the progress we have made and the tasks that lay ahead.

The afternoon was spent working on Accreditation tasks, as faculty participated in program-based Focus Groups, and an Evening Recap was offered.


On 9/3 the first annual ‘Adjunct Breakfast with the President’ was held, with 130+ faculty attending this informative event.  A concurrent session offered by District Research Staff presented the results of the Student Satisfaction Survey, and on Sept. 4 the results from the Staff Satisfaction Survey were presented.  Program meetings were also held on the morning of Sept. 3.
