I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful it was to see so many of you at AACC Annual. I hope you came away from the conference inspired, invigorated, and full of new ideas.
Some highlights for me – in addition to seeing friends and colleagues – included announcing the AACC Hall of Fame, presenting the Leadership Awards and Awards of Excellence, and honoring faculty with the Dale P. Parnell Faculty Distinction Recognition. It’s great to come together and celebrate your hard work and all of your accomplishments.
