Jackie Gill, Ed.D., president of the MCC-Business & Technology campus, has been appointed to the American Association of Community Colleges’ Commission on Economic and Workforce Development.

Gill’s term on the commission runs from July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2019.

“We are sure that your insights and leadership will significantly contribute to the Board’s decision-making process and its ability to serve the interests of all AACC member institutions,” Walter G. Bumphus, AACC’s president and CEO, wrote in Gill’s appointment letter.

Gill joined MCC in February 2016. Her responsibilities include overseeing the College’s Institute for Workforce Innovation, which provides short-term training opportunities for workers in high-demand industries, as well as business and consulting services.

AACC has six standing advisory commissions and three special commissions. Each group consists of about two dozen people from member institutions who are CEOs or campus leaders, plus additional people from organizations who work in areas that are relevant to each commission’s specific charge. Each commission meets twice a year.
