New and Exciting
At its Annual Organization, Oath of Office, and Regular Session meeting on Monday, December 21, the Long Beach Community College District (LBCCD) Board of Trustees elected Uduak-Joe Ntuk as President of the LBCCD Board of Trustees, and new Trustee Herlinda Chico was elected Vice President. Chico was sworn-in to represent Area 4 of the College District, and Trustee Vivian Malauulu was sworn-in for her second term.
The Long Beach Community College District Board of Trustees appointed Robyn Gordon-Peterson as their representative on the Long Beach City College Personnel Commission.
The Personnel Commission is comprised of three District residents who work with the governing board and College administrators in the hiring of District Classified Professional employees and establishing best practices in personnel administration.
The four-level facility, funded by local taxpayers who supported the college’s bond measures, adds 530 PCC-convenient parking stalls and encourages energy efficiency with 33 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations, 45 clean Air Vehicle parking spaces, rooftop solar panels and secured bicycle parking. An app in Android and Apple can be downloaded free to display real-time parking availability in the new structure. The project was completed ahead of schedule and $500,000 under budget.
