Joe Garcia
Joe Garcia assumed the presidency of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) on June 2016. Garcia left his dual role as Colorado lieutenant governor and executive director of the state’s Department of Higher Education and will be the seventh president of WICHE since its founding 62 years ago.

Before his inauguration as lieutenant governor in 2011 and re-election in 2015, Garcia was president of Colorado State University-Pueblo. During his four-year tenure there, he helped the institution overcome financial difficulties and stagnant enrollment, and enhanced its reputation through aggressive marketing and nontraditional solutions. Previously, he was president of Colorado’s second-largest community college, Pikes Peak Community College, overseeing three campuses serving more than 16,000 students a year.

Garcia, who earned a business degree from the University of Colorado and a juris doctorate from Harvard Law School, began his career in 1983 with Holme Roberts & Owen, where he went on to become the first Hispanic partner in the 100-year history of the storied Denver law firm. In 1993, he joined former Gov. Roy Romer’s cabinet as executive director of the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies, a position he held until his appointment in 1999 as the U.S. Department of Housing and Development’s regional director for the Rocky Mountain states.

Throughout his career, Garcia has been actively involved as a board member for numerous civic, educational, and cultural nonprofit organizations, including the YMCAs of Pueblo, Colorado Springs, and Denver; Pikes Peak Legal Aid; economic development agencies in Pueblo and Colorado Springs; the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority; Pikes Peak Child Nursery Centers; and the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities. He served nine years on the WICHE Commission and was its chair in 2012.

WICHE
The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education is a regional organization created by the Western Regional Education Compact and adopted in the 1950s by Western states. WICHE was created to facilitate resource sharing among the higher education systems of the West. It implements a number of activities to accomplish its objectives.

WICHE is located in Boulder, CO. WICHE is governed by three gubernatorially appointed commissioners from each member. Each member commits to support WICHE's basic operations through annual dues established by the full commission.  Members include 15 Western states and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

Joe Garcia will be introduced by Steve Shogan.

This interactive and humorous presentation is for any member or guest who thinks they are an insomniac or is chronically tired because of sleep issues. 
Mark Reagon is a sleep consultant.  His job is to teach people how to get to sleep and stay asleep. This presentation will show you:

  • What lost sleep is costing you and how most people are sleep deprived even if they don’t realize it. 
  • How to create good habits that’ll help you start getting the sleep you need to be at your most productive… and not just on the weekend.
  • Several easy mental techniques to relax and sleep at night both at home or on the road.

Mark will ask for volunteers that have sleep problems to prove his points and teach his techniques. He promises that the only one who can sleep through is presentation will be the volunteer!

SOME USEFUL STATISTICS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP

The U.S. economy alone loses 411 billion dollars a year in productivity and 1.12 million working days.

  • When you, your employees, and your coworkers don’t sleep well, it costs you big time.
  • Tired employees get sick more easily from an affected immune system, have higher chances of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and their life expectancy is lower than someone who sleeps well.
  • To make matters worse, if you’re tired it’s easy to make mistakes. This could be a small mistake such as sending an email or bill to the wrong client.
  • Minor mistakes cost you time and can lead to embarrassment. Catastrophic mistakes can cost you and your company millions of dollars.
  • The Exxon Valdez oil spill was caused by a sleep-deprived employee. The ship’s crew worked a 22-hour shift loading the oil onto the ship. As they got underway, piloting the ship was 3rd mate Gregory Cousins. With only a short nap in the last 16 hours, he allegedly fell asleep at the helm, and the rest is history.  The resulting litigation and clean up costs for the spill totaled more than 7 billion dollars.
  • The US Navy confirmed that the two ship collisions in the Pacific Ocean in 2017, resulting in the deaths of numerous sailors, were a result of a lack of sleep. 

Sleep deprivation hurts your bottom line.

  • 60% of Americans say they experience problems with their sleep almost every night.

To make it worse, most people who are sleep deprived don’t think they are.

  • If you get 6 hours (or less) of sleep a night and think you’re fine, you’re hurting your performance and productivity without even realizing it. 
  • Have you ever seen someone who was drunk, but the drunk person thought they were fine? It’s the same thing.
  • A lack of sleep is a lot like being drunk: you make more mistakes, your decision making is impaired, and you’re easily distracted.
  • Many people think they can sleep poorly during the week and “catch up” on it during the weekend. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work. To perform at your best, you need to sleep well consistently, not just 1 or 2 nights a week. 

If you get regular nights of quality sleep, you will perform better. 
When sleep equals productivity, a well-rested workforce is a productive workforce.

 

Mark will be introduced by Tim Hartwig

Ken Scott pursues South Sudanese mass rapists and killers the same way he once prosecuted drug traffickers in Denver and war criminals in Bosnia: by first meeting victims and their families.  “You’ve got to hear their stories. You always have to see the crime scene. There is nothing like being there,” Scott said during a recent interview at his Capitol Hill home.

In a legal career spanning four decades, Scott prosecuted crooks including Ponzi schemers in Denver U.S. District Court and Bosnian genocide perpetrators at the Yugoslavia Tribunal at The Hague in the Netherlands. He is now a member of a three-person commission that made recommendations Dec. 14 to the United Nations to confront ethnic cleansing in South Sudan.

Ken will tell us what it is like to work for the Hague and the investigation that he has participated in on genocide and other war crimes. 

 

 

Ken will be introduced by Peter VanArsdale
