ACCCA Conference

Planning is underway for our 2018 Annual Conference - The Big Picture! We are excited to be heading to Santa Rosa this year!

Due to the recent tragic fires in Northern California, many of you have asked if the conference will still be held in Santa Rosa. Yes, it will. The property was not damaged and they are already preparing for our arrival in February.

Beyond that, the area needs us to hold this conference there now, more than ever. The dollars we all spend will aide in the rebuilding efforts. Community colleges are economic development engines and it is only fitting that we bring this large event to an area that needs economic stimulus at this time.

In fact, we invite you to extend your trip and visit Sonoma and Napa counties. Shops and wineries are open and everyone is ready to extend that special Sonoma County hospitality!

Visit this page frequently as information will be updated regularly.




February 21-23, 2018

Please note our new start time on Wednesday to maximize your conference experience!
Conference activities run from approximately 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, 2/21 thru noon on Friday, 2/23.
