Faculty Bios 

*The Pre-Conference Institute is FULL for 2023.*


The 2023 International ACAC Pre-Conference Institute offers mid-career members and members at the beginning of a career or new role an opportunity to strengthen specific knowledge sets and professional relationships in a smaller, intentional setting before the conference begins. While some content-based sessions will be pre-recorded for viewing prior to arrival, the Institute will take place fully in-person beginning Monday morning at FIU, so participants should plan to arrive in Miami on Sunday, July 9. 

This event will include meaningful engagement in an in-person setting for those who are traveling to Florida.
