The CCO 2022 Conference, held in beautiful Muskoka, Ontario on May 25th and 26th, looked at the current issues affecting private career institutions. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, of up to 16 elected private career college owners and managers, its composition reflects the diversity in the sector, with owners and managers coming from varied backgrounds and college sizes.
One of CCO’s newly re-elected board directors, Ehsan Safdari, President of the Toronto School of Management, expressed his delight at joining the board for a second term, with each term lasting two years.
“It is an honour to serve this board for another term,” said Safdari. “I am aware of both the privilege and the responsibility and am determined to continue championing our industry and seeking fair treatment for our students and our institutions.”
The association’s purpose is to help governments, key decision makers and the public understand the critical role its members and their students play in supporting Ontario’s post-secondary education system and improving the province’s economic well-being.
CCO currently has a membership of more than 260 career college campuses across the province. Its members contribute to Ontario’s economy by providing highly qualified graduates in hundreds of essential, skilled fields such as Applied Arts, Business, Healthcare, Human Services, Information Technology, Services and Trades.
TSoM wishes its President, Ehsan Safdari, a warm congratulations!
