About ACCA

Message from ACCA President

The Alabama Community College Association (ACCA) Executive Committee is excited for a year emersed full of knowledge and growth as we carve out new pathways towards a reimagined education system.

In 2024, ACCA is providing professional development through various webinars leading up to the annual conference on November 25-27, 2024. During the conference, hundreds of educational professionals from across the state come together to learn, debate, and plan the future of our profession. Our executive committee members are ready to facilitate remarkable roundtable discussions, enriching presentations, and impactful keynote speakers.

The opportunity to see your pride and commitment to serving the individuals of Alabama always leaves me encouraged. I know that together, our efforts result in positive outcomes for all those impacted by the Alabama Community College System.

The annual conference would not be possible without the hard work from the ACCA Executive Committee. All year long, committee members dedicate their time to plan a professional development that will strengthen our ability to better serve Alabama’s communities.

Thanks to each of you for being an integral part in the success of community college students in Alabama. We look forward to seeing you in November!



Annette Funderburk
