I’m Luukia Smith and I’m an accounting technician at El Camino College, where I have worked as a classified employee for 30 years. For more than half that time I also led the El Camino Classified Employees, AFT Local 6142, but stepped down earlier this year after I was elected to head the CFT Council of Classified Employees.

My family is from Hawaii. I love the laid-back island culture, and my leadership style is pretty informal, but “laid back” and “informal” do not mean I’m a pushover. Far from it.

I’m excited to serve alongside Northern Vice President Janet Eberhardt, Southern Vice President Carl Williams, and Secretary Tina Solórzano Fletcher. We want to start by working with locals to identify the needs and issues facing members.
