At a special called meeting on October 5, 2023, the Paris Junior College Board of Regents approved a contract to retain the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) to oversee the search for the next president of the College.
ACCT is a non-profit educational organization of governing boards, representing more than 6,500 elected and appointed trustees who govern over 1,200 community, technical, and junior colleges in the United States and beyond. ACCT has successfully completed over 500 CEO searches ranging from campus presidents to state system presidents.
The Regents met by Zoom with Julie Golder, J.D., ACCT Vice President of Search Services, who explained the typical search process.
A second called meeting will be held on Oct. 16 to follow up with ACCT.
