Why should you participate in the 2020 ACCT Leadership Congress?

We understand if you're feeling a little fatigued with webinars and virtual board and staff meetings — trust us, we get it. But the ACCT Leadership Congress is so much more than that: it's every community college board member's annual opportunity to participate in governance education and to network with peers from throughout the country. It's how trustees and presidents from Arizona share knowledge with trustees and presidents from New York; how leaders from Oregon share with leaders from Mississippi, Illinois, and the Marshall Islands. The year 2020 can be seen in many different ways, but one of the most important ways to see it is as an opportunity to learn from the most unexpected lessons life can give us.

Here's what the 2020 ACCT Leadership Congress will offer you:

  • 60 "live" concurrent sessions presented by renowned experts and college leaders throughout the country
  • 4 dynamic keynote speakers
  • Several interactive networking events designed to connect you with your peers from throughout the country and overseas
  • And EVERYTHING will be recorded, and available for you to watch and re-watch following the Congress. For the first time ever, you will not have to miss a single concurrent session.
