ACC Employee Associations
The Association of Professional-Technical Employees (APTE) is an employee association based on Austin Community College’s personnel classification system. You become part of the Association when you are hired as a professional/technical employee. The employee associations, Full-Time Faculty Senate, Adjunct Faculty Association, Classified Employee Association and APTE, participate in the College’s Shared Governance process – a collaborative process by which councils and committees review the College’s processes and procedures and make recommendations for policy that are based on the mission, goals, and values of the College.
The Association of Professional-Technical Employees of Austin Community College District is committed to providing leadership and support services to the Professional-Technical employees of the College in order to facilitate ACC’s mission of promoting student success and improving communities.
On Monday, June 20, 1994, at 11:05 a.m., in the Boardroom at the District Administrative Offices (DAO, no longer in use by ACC), Dr. Rod Fluker, Sr. opened the first meeting of ACC Professional-Technical employees convened for the purpose of creating a formal association. Of the 119 professional-technical employees of ACC, 66 were present. Dr. Bill Segura spoke to the group, giving an overview of the need for employee group participation in shared governance of the College. Dr. Luanne Allen was appointed chair of the Constitution Committee charged with recommending an organizational structure and communications network. Pauline Hargrave was appointed chair of the Issues Committee charged with identifying and designing a method of addressing issues of concern to Prof-Tech employees. Albert Perez and Roy McGhee were selected to represent the group at the upcoming President’s Cabinet retreat.
On Thursday, August 19, 1994, the group ratified its constitution and became known officially as the Association of Professional-Technical Employees of Austin Community College.
On September 30, 1994, officers and representatives were elected to guide APTE in its inaugural year: President, Dale Butler; President-Elect, Penny Levisay; Vice President, Roy McGhee; Secretary/Treasurer, Doris Bailey; Parliamentarian, Joe Winer; and Representatives to the Executive Council, Terry Bazan, Herb Coleman, Rod Fluker, Sr., Deanna Hubbard, Debra Iversen, Marilyn Lee, and Dan Washam.
