High Point University | High Point, North Carolina
Dear Southeastern Colleagues,
It was a real treat to see so many of you in Charleston at the first (of many!) SECLCA conference in June! While I enjoyed showing off our campus and our city, the greatest pleasure was to witness conversation and collaboration among our SC, NC, and GA colleagues. That is, for me, what a real affiliate does best: connects a geographic region so we can learn from each other, and strengthen ties within our profession.
I encourage all of us to continue these conversations this year, even as we get busy with our own centers. Isn’t it comforting to know that you have colleagues across the southeast (and beyond!) who know the particular challenges and joys of your work? It certainly is for me!
I really hope to see many of you in Tampa in October at the NCLCA conference. But remember, even when we can’t come together in person, there is a whole network of resources that we have access to as learning center professionals! Let’s keep in touch!
the best for a great 2016-17 academic year,
Lindy Coleman, President SECLCA
Recording Secretary, NCLCA
Interim Director, Center for Student Learning

SECLCA was created to develop a connected and cohesive community of learning center professionals within the state of South Carolina. The first annual meeting was held June 13, 2014 in Columbia, SC, at the Inn at USC. At the second conference, held June 12, 2015 at Winthrop University, the group voted to expand membership to learning center professionals in the tri-state area of North/South Carolina and Georgia. The new name is the Southeastern College Learning Center Association (SECLCA).
