AACC cancels 100th Annual Convention

By AACC 21st Century Center Staff

A message from AACC.

We regret to inform you that due to the growing threat of exposure to COVID-19 we have cancelled our upcoming AACC 100th Annual Convention.

As we have previously communicated, we have closely monitored news reports and guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as information provided by other expert sources.  Our primary concern has been, and will always remain, the health and safety of our members, staff and other participants.

Every year, we look forward to connecting with our colleagues and community at the AACC Annual Convention.  This year’s event, marking our 100th birthday, was particularly special for all of us.  However, given the growing concerns around COVID-19, including strong warning respecting travel and meetings, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s convention.

We are by no means alone:  a number of major higher education events, including SXSW.EDU, the American Educational Research Association annual meeting, and, most recently, the annual meeting of the American Council on Education (ACE), have been cancelled, recast as virtual meetings, or deferred. An increasing number of institutions also have cancelled classes or transitioned to on-line instruction.  This is an unprecedented health emergency which we must all take very seriously and act to protect the health of our community.

Please see below for answers to questions you may have regarding refunds for pre-paid registration and participation.  We will continue to provide necessary updates and truly appreciate your understanding and support.

Information about registration, lodging and more can be found here.
