I received this press release:
Part-time Sierra College electronics professor and former Nevada County Supervisor Jim Weir has been elected to a third term as treasurer of the Community College Association, a higher education faculty affiliate of the 325,000-member California Teachers Association.
Weir, a long-time advocate for part-time faculty in California community colleges, was re-elected Saturday afternoon, following an election at the faculty union’s annual spring conference. He joins a team of community college faculty leaders that include CCA President Ron Norton Reel, instructor at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut; Vice President Lynette Nyaggah, an instructor at Rio Hondo College in Whittier; and DeWayne Sheaffer, a counselor at Long Beach City College.
Before being elected to his first term as secretary in 2007, Weir served as a member of the CCA board of directors representing Solano, Delta, Tahoe and Sierra Colleges.
“California’s community colleges are more important than ever in revitalizing California’s economy,” Weir said. “As the organization representing thousands of community college instructors, the Community College Association has an important role to play in advocating for our colleges, our 2.5 million students and our profession,” he said.
