Washington, D.C., March 13, 2008 – Dr. Laura Pogue, Chief Executive Officer of Complete Consulting, Inc., attended the Career College Association’s Policy Forum & Hill Day 2008 on Capitol Hill.

Dr. Pogue participated in Capitol Hill Meetings with Congressmen and their respective staffs, in addition to the Policy Forum, which included sessions addressing higher education legislative and regulatory issues. “Hill Day was a highly effective way for us to educate Members of Congress and their staff on issues of critical importance to our clients within the higher-education sector,” stated Dr. Pogue.

As reauthorization of the Higher Education Act moves forward, Dr. Pogue and other Career College Association members met with House and Senate members at their Capitol Hill offices to communicate issues of importance to the career college industry and adult college students. Meetings with key officials from Congress and from the U.S. Department of Education also allowed for the dialogue between the government and education industry to continue on the higher-education issues.

“Our goal is to influence legislation on lending issues and general higher-education issues that provides student access and opportunity to college,” according to Dr. Pogue. Career College Association lobbying focused on several, specific items intended to assist students in reaching their educational goals, including:
