About ACCA

Message from ACCA President

Though we were disappointed to have to cancel last year’s 2020 Alabama Community College Association (ACCA) Conference , we are excited to be planning the 2021 conference. The Birmingham Sheraton and BJCC have transferred our existing contract without penalty to November 21-23, 2021. We know the 2020-2021 academic year has been a difficult and challenging time for all educators, and we hope that you have had a productive year.  

I hope that everyone stays safe and healthy throughout the remainder of the year and that we can look forward to a return to a more normal life prior to the 2021 ACCA Conference. 

Ben Jordan, ACCA President
