The ACCET Leadership Team and the Executive Committee of the Commission invite school owners, executives, managers, and prospective member institutions to join us in Washington, DC, for the 1st Annual Leadership Summit on November 13-14, 2022.

Participants will hear about the ACCET leadership's vision and strategic priorities, upcoming standards revisions, and new events and professional development offerings.

Presentations and Panel Discussions include topics such as the changing campus workplace, cybersecurity awareness and considerations for the online classroom, legislative & compliance updates, and an IEP update & roadmap. Participants will partake in a hands-on strategic planning workshop about shaping the blueprint for ACCET's future priorities and initiatives. The summit will conclude with an open forum with ACCET's leadership team. 

The Annual Leadership Summit is also a great networking opportunity to meet peers from all membership sectors and to build an active relationship with ACCET's Leadership Team.
