Dr. Pogue Joins Leaders of Career Colleges at the 2010 CCA Winter Senior Executive Management Seminar






Telluride, CO — February 5, 2010 — For the third year in a row, Dr. Laura Pogue, CEO of Complete Consulting, Inc., attended the Career College Association (CCA) Winter Senior Executive Management Seminar, held in early February in Telluride, Colorado. Approximately 100 leaders from career colleges across the country attended.

 “The Career College Association always hosts an engaging event with programs and breakout sessions on topics salient to the industry,” says Dr. Pogue. “I received my Doctor of Management from a career college, and Complete Consulting has always supported career colleges and shares their concern for the issues they face.”

 This year’s discussions centered on public policy developments in regards to the recent reauthorization of the Higher Education Act and related legislation, such as the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act (SAFRA) of 2009, which strengthens federal financial aid for college students. Proposed changes to the 90-10 Rule requiring institutions to receive no more than 90 percent of their revenue from Title IV grants and loans were also heavily discussed.

“I have been a member of the Career College Association for several years and have seen firsthand how the organization advocates on behalf of students of all ages and incomes for a quality education,” says Dr. Pogue. “Having access to adequate federal student loans is critical to students who turn to career colleges to develop their skills and improve their contributions to the US economy.” 

 Other issues addressed at this year’s event included online recruitment, public relations in the career college sector, and increasing the loyalty and tenure of top executives at career colleges.

 “All of these issues are fundamental to career colleges surviving and thriving in the future,” continues Dr. Pogue. “Career colleges educate more than 2 million students each year in hundreds of occupational fields and technical specialties, enabling many to vastly improve their earning potential. The US economy depends on the skills-based training these institutions provide and the value their graduates bring to the workplace.”
