Welcome to Region 6

Welcome to the ACSA Region 6 website, and to the 2016-17 school year. As your Region 6 President for this year, I am honored to represent our region and those who are ACSA members. I am enthusiastic to work with our Executive Director, Bob Giannini, our Regional Consultant, Rose Lock, Past President Janet Haun, President Elect Essence Phillips, along with the rest of the executive committee to serve our membership. I strongly believe in ACSA and the professional development, networking and support the organization provides its membership.

My goal this year is to increase communication, collaboration and professional development to the membership of Region VI which includes Contra Costa and Alameda Counties. I look forward to being able to meet and collaborate with current and potential members of ACSA Region VI and provide resources and support to expand the horizons of individuals in our region through ACSA resources.
Thank you for visiting our website and I hope you have a very successful year.

Steve Collins, ACSA Region 6 President
