Reflecting back on attending my first professional tutor conference, I remember how out of place I felt in a sea of knowledge. During the awards luncheon, I wondered about the paths these recipients travelled while simultaneously listening to their accomplishments adding to the field of learning support. What I realize now is that each person takes a different path to make contributions, and everyone has opportunities to make contributions, impacting us as professionals, our institutions, and especially our students!
Being a part of SECLCA provides opportunities to engage with learning support colleagues across the tri-state region. We learn, we teach, and we support each other. As SECLCA President, I look forward to working with each of you as we continue our growth trajectory as an organization.
Dr. Craig C. Curty, SECLCA President
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).
