From the April 24, 2012 issue of City Currents:
Business Department Noncredit faculty coordinated the hands-on computer workshops at the 2012 Western Business Education Association (WBEA)/California Business Education Association (CBEA) Joint Conference
this semester at Newport Beach during Presidents’ Weekend. The theme this year was Making Waves – Creating Opportunities. Seven Workshop Presentations Committee members Diva Conrad, Jamiel Lemley, Leslies Morales, and Stephanie Rosenberg (Chair) scheduled and facilitated all seven popular workshops representing CCSF and CBEA at the conference. Jamiel Lemley presented Computer Workshop 4: Making Waves with Photoshop Elements 10. All of his session evaluations were outstanding and included
additional feedback comments, such as, “I learned so much,” “All Good,” and “a great presenter.” California hosted this year’s professional development
and networking weekend which brought business educators from across the western states (including Alaska and Hawaii) and Canada. The majority of the
attendees (36%) were from community colleges.
Participants were reinvigorated by the 32 breakouts sessions, two professional tours, and two keynote addresses: “Funny Money” by Canadian comedian
and TV personality James Cunningham, and “World Finance” by finance professor Robert Ironside of Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Canada.
The 2013 WBEA conference, Ride the Rails to Success,is scheduled in historic Ogden, Utah, February 14-18, and the next CBEA conference, Teaching with Style, is scheduled in Sacramento, November 1-4, 2012.
