About Us

The Association of California Community College Administrators [ACCCA], is the foremost member-supported professional organization for administrators and managers of California’s community college campuses and their district offices. Comprising 73 districts and 116 colleges, the California Community Colleges make up the largest higher education system in the nation—providing a gateway to higher education for over 2.1 million students per year. As you will see when you tour this site, ACCCA seeks to provide its members with services, benefits, products and programs that will enhance their professional lives.

ACCCA was established in 1975 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of administrator’s rights through advocacy.  Since its inception, ACCCA has expanded to provide insurance benefits, legal services, professional development opportunities, business partnerships, and career development assistance to a growing coalition of administrators and managers.

ACCCA is managed by a small administrative staff headquartered in Sacramento, and along with a large cadre of volunteers and selected contractors they carry out the work of the Association. Our volunteers include members of the elected Board of Directors, commission and committee members and 124 Campus and District Office Contacts.

The ACCCA Board is a 23 member governing body that is elected by members to three-year staggered terms. The Board operates on the recommendations of the Executive Committee-a standing committee of the Board—who are its officers (President, President-Elect and Immediate Past President.)

The administrative functions of the Association are carried out by the Executive Director and professional staff that oversee the day-to-day operation of the Association, and facilitate the programs and events that have become the hallmark of ACCCA membership.
