4CS Activities, Services and Training Opportunities

From this page you can explore the upcoming, current and past activities of 4CS as well as upcoming events of statewide community college organization relative to classified professionals. We play an important role as co-host for the statewide classified leadership event (Classified Leadership Institute) and provide a variety of other services for statewide organizations, classified staff and classified senates from across the State. Through our activities, we support professional growth, classified senates, quality community college education and services, and staff participation in regional and local activities.

Staying Connected

As we continue to work from home, we are hearing of wonderful ideas for colleagues and senates to stay engaged! Please utilize your technology (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, etc) to host weekly gatherings such as coffee clatches and learning lunches. Share your experiences on what helps you cope with this challenging time! We'd love to hear from you and share what you are doing with your colleagues around the state!
