ACCT Call for Presentations


Deadline for Submissions is Friday, July 2, 2021

Share your best ideas and most meaningful experiences with other community college leaders. 

THE ACCT LEADERSHIP CONGRESS is the premier annual conference for community college leaders and the only national conference dedicated to community college trustees. Each year, community and technical college trustees, CEOs and other executives, and federal higher education policy influencers gather to share information about governance best practices, community college advocacy, and advancing student success and more.

We invite community college board members, CEOs and other ACCT members to submit presentation proposals within any of the following tracks.


  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiatives

  • Partnerships and Collaborations

  • Board Basics: How to be an Effective Trustee

  • New Pathways to Student Success

  • Proven Solutions to Boost Enrollment

  • Lessons Learned from the COVID-19 Pandemic


These 60-minute sessions are designed as lecture-type presentations; however, it is recommended that presenters include interactive activities throughout the presentation in order to keep participants engaged. All proposed session topics must identify with one of the tracks that outline the theme of the ACCT Leadership Congress. Each concurrent session must include a minimum of two presenters.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Must include trustees among presenters.

  • Must address one of the tracks.

  • All presenters must register for the Congress.

  • Proposal must include a letter of support from the board of trustees of the college.

All concurrent session presenters must pay $225 for AV equipment (LCD Projector/Screen) if requested.
