These four issues of "ACCT Trustee Quarterly" contain articles on topics of current concern to community college trustees. Articles in the Winter 1986-87 issue focus on current economic challenges, personal liability, filling trustee vacancies on community college boards, cooperative ventures, foundation-building, a "quality first" program, the American community college system, and merit pay. The Spring 1987 issue examines the relationship between private industry and public education, community colleges and the economic development of the Rural South, two-year college alumni programs, secondary and postsecondary vocational programs, computer programmer training for the disabled, cultural pluralism, and the selection of the college president. Topics discussed in the Summer 1987 issue include improvement of minority student services, financial planning, the mission for community colleges in 1987, evaluating the chief executive officer, leadership, and a "study of learning excellence." Finally, the Fall 1987 issue covers the economic implications of the American Nursing Association's proposal on entry into practice, exemplary boardsmanship, a national survey on community college trustee characteristics, the mission of the community college, the use of financial forecasts, and the "cooling out function" and its relationship to recruiting and retention in community colleges.
