The Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) has recognized Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board President Dana Saar for his commitment to excellence in community college governance. Saar completed the ACCT’s Community College Governance Recognition Program (CCGRP) after participating in seminars and trainings about financial oversight, institutional accreditation and governance leadership.

ACCT — the national association serving the needs of community college trustees — designed the CCGRP as a way to share knowledge essential to the practice of exemplary community college governance and provide individual trustees an opportunity to earn a certificate of participation. The CCGRP is available only to ACCT members of community college boards.

Saar represents Maricopa Community Colleges District Two. He was elected to the governing board in 2010, became the secretary in 2012 and assumed the role of president in 2014. For more information about the Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board, visit
