Don't miss out on ACCE's Mid Year Meeting in February 2017.  This productive series of workshops and training is an opportunity to network with industry peers and colleagues from across the country.

ACCE events are a great way to build relationships with educators and to provide program curriculum input.   

The Florida Hotel and Conference Center.  is a unique property in a location with exceptional winter weather, great restaurant and shopping choices, and first-rate golf courses. 

Our 2017 Mid Year Meeting schedule is a work in progress at this time.  This is a draft agenda, but please check the ACCE website for up to date details schedules, guest/spouse tour, and optional Friday night dinner as plans.  

ACCE's Industry Advisory Board event is one of a kind and a 'must attend' for Advisory Board members and Program Chairs.  

Whether you belong to a long-standing IAB, or are in the early stages of pursuing accreditation, attend this event to share and compare what's been successful for Industry Advisory Boards and Construction Programs across the country.  

Our 2017 IAB event will be held on Wednesday, February 22nd in conjunction with our  Mid Year Meeting in Orlando.
