Annual Membership Drive

A Personal Message from your Executive Director:

Lt. Governor Mary Taylor and Executive Director Kent A. Trofholz

Since I started as Executive Director in January 2015, my primary responsibility was to provide industry-leading opportunities for our membership, as well as, to our students. Further, my goal was to bring awareness of our sector to your communities and Legislators and to share the benefits of our career colleges and schools within the higher education arena. I am still focused on this vision for 2016!

As a member of the Association of Career Colleges and Schools, you will continue having my undivided commitment and support in providing excellence within higher education and the populations we serve. I am confident my focus on continuing to build relationships with our Legislators; representing career colleges and schools statewide; promoting scholarship programs for our students; building workforce development opportunities with employers; offering premium educational and networking opportunities for professional development purposes; building stronger member involvement through our Committees; expanding our online course and website options for members; and lastly, enthusiastically and passionately providing the one-voice for every member, college/school, student, staff member, and educational partner that our Association serves.

I look forward to our continued efforts in promoting our Association and partnering with each and every member in providing excellence in higher education. For 2016, I welcome new and exciting opportunities for promoting our Mission and I THANK YOU for being a member and your continued support of the Association of Career Colleges and Schools!
