About ACCA

Message from ACCA President

The ACCA Executive Committee has been preparing this year with the hope of having an annual conference at the Sheraton Birmingham Hotel/Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex, November 22-24. However, with the surge in infection rates in Alabama of the COVID-19 virus and especially the Delta variant, the decision has been made to cancel this year’s ACCA Conference.  

A notice was sent at the end of August to all institutions. The health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and conference partners is of great concern. 

We are moving forward with planning the 2022 ACCA conference which is tentatively scheduled for the Birmingham Sheraton and BJCC for November 20-22, 2022. We know this is a challenging time for all educators and hope that you have a productive and safe year.
