Eric Magallon's Bio - Owl Bookshop - Citrus College I have been involved in the college bookstore industry for over 34 years. My college bookstore experience began as a student worker at the Owl Bookshop at Citrus College in 1984. Working over the years in all aspects of bookstore operations led to a full time position as operations coordinator. After leaving for three years in the late 90's to spend full time on my own business consulting to companies on office space usage, interior design, and employee interaction to space utilization, I was asked back as a consultant to the Owl Bookshop. Coming home to the Citrus College family lead to a full time position managing Bookstore and Food Services growing operations. My new position as Enterprise Services Manager oversees the Bookstore Services, Cosmetology Spa services, Food Services, Golf Range, Mailroom/Reprographics services, and Vending/Contract services. On campus, I am involved with various Citrus committees, the Alumni Association and Citrus College Foundation. My previous board experience involves serving on not-for-profit and non-profit boards over the years in all positions.
Managing bookstores in our current business environment is very challenging and requires teamwork, communication and guidance from other bookstore team members, vendors, legislators, associations, and the educational institution we serve. Campus bookstores, as we know them, are changing along with technology, customer needs and desires, instructional needs, and institutional restructuring. It is in times like these, campus bookstores depend on member associations like CACS for guidance and support. I have been a proud to be a member of the CACS Board of Directors, including serving as President in 2015, and have continued to help our CACS team with outreach, professional development, and providing members the benefits they need during these difficult times.
