ith new leadership in
the U.S. Department
of Education, our new
Interim Executive
Director, David Jackson,
your newly elected Board
of Directors, our industry and Association
will be more poised to address the opportunities to shape career education.
As your Board President, it is important
to communicate what is on our plate. Since
the end of last year the wheels have been
in motion on many fronts. The Board and
Association office have been immersed in
projects-we have several efforts that are
underway. And by the time that this article
is published, there will be many others. So
here is the Reader's Digest/holistic view of
Board and Association activity.
Firstly, the Board has assembled a task
force to expand on the "Future Beauty
Industry Coalition's" study; our goal is to
identify not only what makes a student
"license ready", but more importantly job
ready. We recognize state sovereignty, and
the ability for each state to set up school
and curriculum requirements appropriate for their markets and students. We
recognize that there are overlapping
attributes that make students successful
from the West Coast, to the East Coast
and in between. The process in identifying
and measuring these areas provides our
schools templates to develop education
models to help students succeed in the
most effective, and efficient ways possible.
This exercise allows us to lower student
debt, allow for greater license mobility,
and most importantly, increase success
for our future professionals.
Secondly, our Government Relations
Committee has been working extremely
hard at protecting and advocating for

our students and our industry. From
"Hill Day" in Washington D.C., to work with
the leadership at USDE, to the guidance
of schools and state associations at the
local level, we have been addressing
Gainful Employment and preparing for
Reauthorization. This year, we have
had an incredible response rate from
our school community in addressing
members of Congress and hosting events
at our schools. Through these efforts, our
nation's leaders see the impact that this
industry is having on their communities.
Thirdly, we are re-aligning the
current offerings of the Association. We
are reshaping the way that we deliver
training and information as a better fit
for AACS members. We have launched
several webinars this year on topics that
traditionally would have been held at the
conference. And now at our conferences,
we've created new experiences for our
members to learn from one another,
exchange ideas and reshape the direction
of their schools and the industry. Just as
education methods are changing for our
students, all of the support and value that
we offer our member schools are evolving.
Finally, we recognize the incredible
talents and resources that we have among
our school and associate members. We are
always seeking avenues for encouraging
our talent to create more opportunities to
help them and drive our key goals.
I can't express enough the importance of
a Board and Association Operations that
run the (metaphorically) "three-legged"
race in perfect synchronicity. AACS
Operations initiatives include:
