Professional Staff Members Welcome to Valencia! As a Professional Staff member, you are automatically a member of the Professional Staff Forum. Here’s some important information…. What is our purpose? Developed in 2002, the Valencia Community College Professional Staff Forum serves as a cohesive voice to promote and advocate the inclusion, recognition, and development of Professional Staff and to link Professional Staff with the governance structure of our learning-centered college. Who are our representatives? The Leadership Team consists of 14 Professional Staff employees, representing all campuses and all parts of the college. The Leadership Team meets monthly to discuss relevant issues and to plan Professional Staff Forum meetings that include all staff members. This team is your direct contact to any policy questions you may have. A current list is posted on the Professional Staff Forum Group on Atlas. What do I need to do to become involved? All professional staff members are strongly encouraged to join the Professional Staff Forum Group on Atlas. Meeting minutes and other relevant documents are posted for you to keep up with what’s happening. You will also be included in the email group so watch for this communication. Many opportunities become available to serve on collegewide committees and to become involved in activities that help you meet fellow staff members. Look for an announcement about the next college-wide Professional Staff Forum Meeting!
