 AACC Affiliated Councils 

AACC Affiliated Councils have national or international membership that consists of community colleges, community college-related institutions or agencies, or individuals either associated with community colleges or who serve community colleges.

To be an affiliate of AACC, councils are required to be fiscally sound and must not receive the majority of their operating income from the sale of goods or services. Bylaws of councils and applicants must also state that any financial encumbrance incurred by the council is the sole responsibility of the council. In addition, AACC Affiliated Council policies have to be in agreement with those of AACC. Lastly, councils pay annual membership dues to AACC at a rate approved by the AACC Board of Directors. Dues are payable to AACC in accordance with its fiscal year (January 1–December 31).

Coalition of Affiliated Councils

The Coalition of Affiliated Councils (COAC) is constituted to promote communication, cooperation and collaboration among the leadership of the Affiliated Councils and between the Affiliated Councils and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC).

The COAC brings together the resources and expertise of varied professional groups who work in the community college in order to support AACC activities and initiatives. The COAC is a freely-associating cooperative of the duly elected or appointed representatives of the recognized AACC affiliated councils. Duly elected chairs and chairs-elect (or other designated representatives) are automatically eligible to participate in the activities and work of the COAC.
