 97th AACC Annual Convention 

New Orleans, Louisiana  /  April 22-25, 2017

The AACC annual meeting is among the largest and most dynamic gatherings of educational leaders, attracting over 2,000 community college presidents and senior administrators, as well as international educators, representatives of business/industry, and federal agencies. Learn More.


In an ever changing world, community colleges are constant and dependable, responding to the needs of the nation's citizenry, and the changing economy. For this reason, we selected "Community Colleges: America's North Star" as the theme of the 2017 Annual Convention. In spite of the changing politics of the country, community colleges will always remain that fixed point by which people can set their compasses to navigate change successfully. This year's convention tracks are:

  • College Readiness and Completion
  • Faculty Engagement
  • The American Skills Gap
  • Organizational Strategy
  • Public and Private Investments
  • Policy and Governance
  • Leadership Development and High Performance Culture
