This consortium, which reports annually on its activities to the Council of Atlantic Premiers, was established in August 1998 and is officially recognized through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the provincial ministers responsible for community colleges and the presidents of the community colleges from New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. APCCC partners consist of the Department of Training and Employment Development of the Province of New Brunswick, Department of Education of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Department of Education of the Province of Nova Scotia, Department of Education of the Province of Prince Edward Island and the New Brunswick Community College, College of the North Atlantic, Nova Scotia Community College and Holland College. At its November 8 th 2004 APCCC Board Meeting in Dieppe, the Executive Director, along with a planning committee representing the Board, were charged with the responsibility to draft a business plan for Board approval to cover the fiscal period from April 1, 2005 through March 31, This business plan is guided by the Consortium s Strategic Plan for and sets out to: Build on the work of the Consortium since its inception.

5 5 2.3 Key Accomplishments The has been a transitional year for the Atlantic Provinces Community College Consortium. The former Executive Director retired and a new Executive Director was appointed with an expectation, that while working within the parameters of the Consortium s Strategic Plan and the Business Plan, significant emphasis would be placed on the advocacy agenda as a means of generating a greater awareness of the value of community college education in the social and economic development of the Atlantic region. To this end, preliminary work is being undertaken to prepare an advocacy and awareness strategy that respects the views and autonomy of the member institutions and the departments of governments responsible for colleges. In , APCCC implemented a number of regional initiatives in support of its Strategic Plan and Business Plan. In all cases, the accomplishments are in line with the expected outcomes of the Business Plan and they clearly demonstrate that the founding principles of collaboration, cooperation and sharing among the public colleges underpin the successes achieved. Specifically, the achievements in support of the Strategic Plan and Business plan include: Strategic Theme: Learning Centred College Sponsored an Institute for faculty entitled Designing the Learning Centered College Sponsored a Portfolio Development Workshop for faculty Created an Atlantic Colleges Programs Inventory includes training capacity (targeted completion February 2005) Strategic Theme: Colleges Role in Economic Development Supported the tourism industry through a tourism training and education workshop for educational practitioners Sponsored a workshop for college employees on Enhancing the Community College s Role in Sustaining Rural Communities Participated on the Atlantic Steering Committee as follow-up to recommendations from the Atlantic Construction Symposium Commenced the planning for an Information Technology and Communications Symposium for Created of an Applied Research and Innovation Network ( targeted completion March 2005) Strategic Theme: Regional Collaboration around Government Strategies Created a Guide to Block Transfer Agreements for Atlantic Colleges as a means to provide Atlantic college students with current information on transfer of credit and articulation.
