(July 7, 2016) – Hagerstown Community College Board Trustee John Williamson was recently elected to serve on the Executive Committee of the Maryland Association of Community Colleges (MACC).
“The Maryland Association of Community Colleges is an extremely important organization for HCC and our students. It provides us with a voice in Annapolis, representing all community college students,” said Williamson. “Serving on the Executive Committee provides the opportunity to help shape the strategic direction of the organization in addition to building important relationships with other community college leaders across the state.”
The core mission of Maryland’s 16 community colleges is to provide affordable opportunities to all residents who desire and can benefit from higher education. The role of the Executive Committee is to execute strategic direction and operational oversight for MACC. This committee guides the association’s legislative agenda, prepares and reviews the association’s annual budget, and acts for the board of directors between annual meetings. The Executive Committee consists of three trustees who serve as the president, treasurer, and member at-large, and four presidents all elected by the board of directors to one year terms in addition to the MACC Executive Director.
Williamson has served as a board trustee at HCC since 2012. He served on the board of directors of the HCC Foundation from 2007 to 2013. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Clemson University and an M.B.A. from Virginia Tech. He is a principal of Veridian Capital Partners, a financial planning and asset management firm affiliated with Ameriprise Financial.
