Building Governance Frameworks: Professional Development Days for CEOs and their Board Chairs
Please note: these two days are for CCA members only
Community Colleges Australia invites CCA members to your choice of two one-day professional and organisational development sessions, entitled “Building Governance Frameworks”. These sessions have been set up in recognition of the important governance relationship between the CEOs of community colleges and the Chairs of the Boards of Directors, and is supported by a grant from the NSW Department of Industry.
For CEOs, the focus will be on how to engage and drive the work of the Board of Directors and the Chair. For Chairs, the focus will be on how to drive the work of the Board and the CEO.
Your choice of two sessions:
- Day 1, Wednesday 14 June 2017, is for new, “new-ish” or “first time” CEOs (and their Board Chairs), from 9.00am to 3.30pm (registration and coffee from 8.30am)
- Day 2, Thursday 15 June 2017, is for more experienced CEOs (and their Board Chairs), from 9.00am to 3.30pm (registration and coffee from 8.30am)
Each day there will be opportunities for informal discussions with facilitator until 5.00pm.
Your facilitator Ty Wiggins:
Ty Wiggins is a Principal of Converge Consulting, and has undertaken extensive work with NSW community colleges, developing a deep understanding of our members’ strategic needs and challenges. He holds a Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology, UNSW), a Master of Business Coaching (Sydney Business School, UOW) and a Master of Business Administration (with Distinction, Sydney Business School, UOW), and is completing a Doctorate of Business Administration. His thesis examines the question, “Why does business strategy fail?” (Although he notes that it may be that it is not ‘why’ but ‘when’.)
Both sessions will be held at the Grace Hotel, 77 York Street (corner King Street), Sydney, NSW 2000.
There is no cost to you to attend this event, other than your transport and accommodation (if required). The NSW Department of Industry has provided funding to support these events.

CCA’s signature professional development activity is the annual conference, this year to be held in Melbourne 25-27 July 2017 with the theme “Community Education: Investing in Our Future”. The conference provides a forum for member networking and a platform for a discussion of key issues affecting the sector, together with future insights, featuring Australian and international keynote speakers.
The highly successful 2016 Sydney conference had the theme "Innovation: What's Next for Community Education?”
The 'CCA Online' Moodle portal is a personal space, accessible only by members, via our website.
