Quality Board of Advisors

The Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC) Board of Education voted to form the CGCC Quality Board of Advisors (QBA) in October 2001. The members of the Quality Board were selected from business and education based on their backgrounds and success in organizational excellence. The purpose of the QBA is to provide ongoing mentoring and support to the college in the areas of leadership, quality management, and organizational excellence.

These men and women each bring to the table a passion for performance excellence, and each has been exceptionally successful in their area of expertise. As a result of their ideals, ideas, moral and financial support, CGCC has been able to weather an economic crisis in Oregon while providing world class programs focused on economic and community vitality. With the help of people like the Quality Board of Advisors, CGCC will in fact become the first option of choice for education and training services in the communities we serve.
