ASCC looks forward to Leadership Conference

Jesus Ruiz

Leader Conference applications will be available on Nov. 2.

This conference, which is being held in San Diego, is a three-day trip in which those participating will be able to grab a hold of a use of workshops as well as some sightseeing in the city.

The conference will have seven different workshops to look forward to in which different teams will work on events and interact with different people.

A group of 80 applicants will have this chance at the cost of only $50.

Clubs attending will allow only four members per club, but it doesn’t mean students who aren’t in student government or any clubs can’t attend.

The students attending have to pay to take part in this conference, and there are certain qualifications.

The qualifications state that the people attending must be enrolled at Cerritos College.

Other qualifications include that students must have completed at least five units in the Fall and have kept a 2.0 GPA through the semester.

Students can pay as soon as they have filled out the application and take it to Holly Bogdonovich, director of Student Activities, in the Student Activities Center.

If there is no more room available for anyone else, students can put themselves on the waiting list in case any occurrences happen in which students might have to drop out of the event.

Bogdanovich stated, “When applications are available, you want to get there and turn it in to me as soon as you can.”

Also, the ASCC Cabinet was informed that there will be a Board of Trustees meeting on Oct. 20 from 11 to 12:30 p.m.

ASCC Vice President Rosa Costaneda stated that this was the purpose of having a student government.

“It is to get students, staff and faculty into the committee and is why it pushes students. So that our voice can be heard.”

On the Cabinet’s agenda, the ASCC also mentioned that float building has started and will continue until friday.

Building hours will be:

  • Monday from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.,
  • Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and
  • Friday from 10 a.m. to midnight.

Students who are available to help are encouraged to help with the floats, whether with a club or not.

“Go out there and help out organizations out there that might need help,” Bogdanovich explained.

The Cabinet also sets to inform students about upcoming events so that they can take part of the events Cerritos College has to offer:

  • Homecoming Queen elections, which will be held on Oct. 21 and 22 at 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Food Court Patio, Social Science patio and the Health Science walkway.
  • Homecoming Day will be held on Oct. 24.
  • The food drive beginning on Oct. 26 at 8:30 a.m. with the competition ending on Nov. 19 at noon.
  • The Halloween costume contest will be held on Oct. 29 at 11 a.m.
