As professionals, we get inspired, energized and motivated by attending ACCED-I educational opportunities. We hope that our student staff will be able to attend this conference, navigate their leadership styles, and in return generate the same productivity as the professional staff.

The students will explore “New Destinations” within the higher education field of conference services. The take away from this conference, for the students, will be how to turn their summer job into a career in collegiate conference and events management.  Asking themselves, "Am I on the Right Track?"  And, assisting students in using their customer service skills to work in a variety of jobs!

The goal is to have a series of breakout sessions with expert facilitators and interactive networking, so the student will leave the conference with a stronger foundation on how to serve in their role as leader while taking on various roles on campus.
