 Convention Overview 

The AACC annual meeting is among the largest and most dynamic gatherings of educational leaders, attracting over 2,000 community college presidents and senior administrators, as well as international educators, representatives of business/industry and federal agencies.

The premiere event for community college leaders, AACC's Annual Convention offers unprecedented professional development as well as the opportunity to network, share, and learn from professionals in the fields of education, business and industry, and the government sector. The Innovation Showplace offers a variety of services and products to bring innovation to your campus.

Major Meetings and Events

Two days of preconvention workshops and business meetings are offered before the convention begins. The conference officially starts on Saturday afternoon with the opening general session followed by the grand opening of the Innovation Showplace and various affiliate receptions.

Sunday and Monday offer breakfast meetings, breakout sessions, visits to the exhibit hall and more affiliate receptions.

Monday evening is the Awards of Excellence gala dinner where AACC celebrates the truly extraordinary—often visionary—work being done at our member colleges.

Tuesday morning includes one hour of concurrent forum sessions followed by the AACC Outstanding Alumni brunch.
