MACC President Dr. Evelyn E. Jorgenson and board members, Jim Cooksey and Rodney Loesch recently attended the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) Legislative Summit in Washington DC where they met with Missouri U.S. Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer as well as Senator Roy Blunt and Corey Dukes, the Senior Legislative Assistant in Senator Claire McCaskill's office to lobby for community college legislation.

The Summit includes guest speakers, general sessions, policy focus sessions, and visits to the House, Senate and Executive offices.

This year, notable speakers included Roberto J. Rodriguez, Special Assistant to the President for Education, the Honorable Michael Enzi of the U.S. Senate, the Honorable Steny Hoyer of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Honorable Tom Harkin of the U.S. Senate and the Honorable Eric Shinseki, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs.
