Remember That One Time JCCC Respected Hourly Employees Enough to Put One on the New President Screening Committee?

This email was sent 8:39 AM, Monday, August 28, 2006:

TO: Full-Time Regular and Part-Time Regular Office & Technical, Maintenance & Service and Hourly Technical Staff

FROM: Office of the President

SUBJECT: JCCC New President Screening Committee

As you are aware, the college is beginning the search process for its new JCCC President.  As part of this plan, a Screening Committee is being formed to provide input into this search process.  A position is available on this Screening Committee for an hourly-paid JCCC staff member.

We are currently seeking the names of hourly staff interested in serving on this New President Screening Committee.  If you have an interest in participating in this role or wish to nominate a peer, I request that you submit your name or nomination through our on-line nomination process.  This information must be received by Tuesday, August 29, 2006 at 9:00pm in order to receive further consideration.

To access the on-line nomination process:

1) Access the college home page (

2) Login to MyJCCC

3) Click on the JCCC Applications tab

4) Click on Human Resources

5) Click on the Screening Committee link

On Thursday, August 31, 2006, an alphabetical list of eligible names submitted will be sent to you and your hourly peers for a vote to select the person to be appointed to this committee.  Any names or nominations received for active Office Personnel League (OPL) members will not be included in this list because the OPL membership has a seat on the Screening Committee and will have a separate selection process.  If this process results in a tie vote, there will be a run-off vote held to select the member for this committee.

The New President Screening Committee will be co-chaired by two Board of Trustees members, Elaine Perilla and Ben Hodge.  Working with Dr. Jeff Hockaday, the college’s search consultant, the responsibilities of this Screening Committee will include attending three scheduled lunch meetings and one evening public forum of approximately 90 minutes each 1) to develop a job profile to be used for screening the applicants for President; 2) to review and screen the credentials and video presentations of candidates brought forward for this position; and 3) to determine a slate of up to 8 candidates to be sent to the full Board of Trustees for their further consideration.

As you can see, the person selected for this committee will play a very important role in screening candidates for the position of new JCCC President.  I hope that you will give this invitation your serious consideration and submit your name as indicated above if you wish to be considered for this assignment.  The selected hourly staff member will be announced after the conclusion of the voting process.

If you have any questions about this process, contact Dorothy Friedrich at college ext. 3268.  Thank you for your consideration.
