"I am grateful to the ACCT Board of Directors for supporting this giveaway so that more members can benefit from these important services."

“Board development is considered a standard of good practice, and facilitated board trainings and retreats can strengthen communication and understanding among board members,” said ACCT Director of Retreats and Evaluation Services Colleen Allen. “This can lead to a stronger, more effective working group. Boards that engage in training and professional development also set a model for the rest of the institution.”

ACCT Vice President for Membership & Educational Services Robin Matross Helms, Ph.D., hosted today's event. "It's exciting to be able to give back to the ACCT membership," she said. Matross Helms joined ACCT in July, bringing with her extensive experience in higher education and a strong business acumen. "Our priority is forging stronger and deeper connections with our member boards, and I look forward to introducing more ways to connect our members with one another and to our educational and other board services soon."
