Waubonsee Community College Assistant Vice President of Student Development Melinda James, of Aurora, has recently been elected to the executive boards of both the Illinois Community College Chief Student Service Officers (ICCCSSO) organization and the Board of Control of the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference.

James will serve as president-elect for the ICCCSSO this year and as president next year. In this role, she will help coordinate the group’s three meetings and help set the agenda. The ICCCSSO is a commission of the Illinois Council of Community College Administrators and includes representatives from each of the state’s 49 community colleges, who gather to discuss such topics as international students, financial aid, student success and campus safety.

For the next two years, James will also serve as secretary for the Board of Control of the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference. Comprised of eight community colleges in the suburban Chicagoland area, the conference sponsors competitions in athletics, art, jazz, writing and science.
