Examples include the Higher Education Act, Workforce Investment Act, Hope Scholarship tax credits, and Pell Grants. Strategic Action Area II (Learning and Accountability) is being addressed through an AACC and Microsoft national training program for information technology community college faculty. Strategic Action Area III concerns leadership development, and the association is moving forward with plans for a Future Leaders Institute, Leadership Certification Program, and the publication of a monograph on community college chief executive officer employment contracts. In order to address Economic and Workforce Development (Strategic Action Area IV), AACC is working on a number of publications, conferences, and technology training programs that focus on fostering business partnerships and employment opportunities. Information is also provided on new AACC Membership initiatives (Action Area V) and International and Intercultural Education programs (Action Area VI).
