Directors’ Meetings


The Southern California Writing Centers Association hosts three Directors’ Meetings each year:

  • one in the fall,
  • one during the tutor conference,
  • and one later in the spring semester.


2018 Fall Directors Meeting

The 2018 Fall Directors Meeting took place on Friday, October 19, 2018 at Bakersfield College in Bakersfield, California from 11am-3pm. Thanks to Kim Arbolante for hosting!

Quick updates from Kim:

  • Continental breakfast beginning at 10:30am (for early arrivals) to include light pastries, fruit, English muffins with butter and jam, and coffee.
  • Lunch to be served at 12:30pm will include Vietnamese salad with grilled chicken (on the side to accommodate vegan/vegetarian diets), vegetarian fried rice, vegetable spring rolls with peanut mint dipping sauce, fresh fruit vegan parfaits & non-vegan parfaits for dessert. Sodas and waters will also be served. There will also be fortune cookies at each table.
  • You can park in lot P3 for free without being ticketed. It is located on the corner of Panorama Drive and Mt. Vernon Avenue. You’ll know it when you see it because it is the lot with the solar panels. There is plenty of handicapped parking there too. We will have a welcome station next to that lot, in front of the PAC Outdoor Theater, with a pop up tent.
  • SGA limousine carts will be available at the pop up tent to help escort everyone to the appropriate room from lot P3.
  • We will have a very brief welcome address from either our President, Dr. Sonya Christian, or our Vice-President, Dr. Zav Dadahboy. Immediately following, I will give a very brief introduction to Bakersfield College’s Writing Center and the community we serve. I believe that both of these welcome and orientation addresses should take no more 10 minutes.
  • The meeting will work in a small amount of time to have a general discussion about how AB-705 and EO-1110 will be affecting public two and four year colleges as both mandates shift the paradigm of remediation in public colleges
