Hornbeck is the vice president of IWCC’s board of trustees, and current chair of the ACCT board of directors. She has pledged to focus on member engagement and extending opportunities to our incarcerated brothers and sisters through community and technical colleges.

What's the real value of a board retreat? Are retreats in order just when a crisis arises at the college, when board members can't get along, or are they useful for keeping everything running well among a well-run board? In this episode, Jacob Bray sits down with Director of Educational Services Colleen Allen, former St. Petersburg College Trustee and former Chair of the ACCT Board of Directors Ken Burke, and former President of Lane Community College Mary Spilde to discuss what board retreats are good for, what they're not good for, and how to get the most of out them. For more information, contact Colleen Allen at callen@acct.org.
