The Advisor Network was established as a national network to assist local institutions' student government and club Advisors to grow in their professional duties and to attain the stature they so richly deserve. The future growth of the Network and of the individual Advisor depends on the involvement of the campus as a whole, from local college presidents and chancellors of multi-college districts, to Deans, Vice Presidents of Student Life, and Directors of Student Activities. More importantly, they include the active participation of each college's student government Advisors.
As early as l992, Norm Berney, Clackamas Community College, Oregon City, OR, championed a move to organize and promote the Advisors Institute as a vehicle for the continuing education of student government Advisors. The continuation of that effort is being realized in the formation of the Advisor Network to encourage active professional networking among Advisors within each state and within each region as a way to establish an active national forum for Advisor advancement.
Mr. Jerry O'Sullivan, Milwaukee Area Technical College, continues to play a significant role in the growth of professional development of student government leaders and serves as the Honorary Chair of the Advisor Network.
Mr. Pat Jund, Student Government Advisor, Bismarck State College, North Dakota, accepted the role of the Advisor Network’s President in 2002 and plans open elections to install delegates to the Network's leadership roles. Mr. Jund is committed to balanced geographical representation and emphasizes that Advisors have full responsibility for programming and expanding their Network regionally and nationally.
Ken Turley from Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, Florida led the network from 2006 until his retirement in 2012. Cathy Lechmaier from Milwaukee Area Technical College began as the President of the Network in 2012 and is currently filling that role.
Under the legal authority of the American Student Association of Community Colleges (ASACC) and championed by its national Board of Trustees, the Advisor Network is expected to be a staunch supporter of student leaders and their opportunity to exercise a vital impact on the future.
Under the guidance and support of the Advisor Network leaders, the newly configured Advisor Network can provide peer support and a forum for sharing information among colleagues across the country.
2019 has been an incredible year for ASACC and those that have attended our conferences. We have brought together incredible speakers, designed a unique service project, and created many opportunities for advisors and students to network with one another.
