ACHA Celebrates!

Featuring the 2018 Award Recipients and Fellows,
with a special performance by the Capitol Steps!

Thursday, May 31, 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

What is "ACHA Celebrates!"?
ACHA Celebrates! is an evening dessert reception featuring the 2018 Award Recipients and Fellows. This year, we've expanded the traditional Awards and Fellows Dinner program to include a performance by the nationally known political satire group The Capitol Steps.

Who are we honoring?
ACHA is honoring the 2018 Award Recipients and Fellows at the beginning of this event. These are individuals or groups who are making exceptional contributions to ACHA, the field of college health, or their own health center and campus.

Will there be a dinner portion of the event?
We have changed the format of the Awards and Fellows Celebration Dinner this year. Instead of a ticketed dinner, we will have the Awards and Fellows presentation, followed by an evening dessert reception, and finally The Capitol Steps performance. The schedule of events will be as follows:

  • 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm: Dessert Reception
  • 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm: Awards and Fellows Presentation
  • 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm: Intermission
  • 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm: The Capitol Steps performance

When you register for the meeting, please indicate which portions of the evening you plan to attend so we can get an accurate headcount.

Who are The Capitol Steps, exactly?
The Capitol Steps are a Washington DC-based comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate Staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Before The Daily Show, Full Frontal, and The Colbert Report, this comedy troupe gave audience laugh cramps with their bipartisan lampooning. The troupe is coming to ACHA 2018 with a new show of musical and political comedy. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Republican or Democrat: neither side is safe from the group that puts the “MOCK” in Democracy!

For a sample of their particular style of comedy, check out the YouTube clip below!

Who's invited to "ACHA Celebrates!"?
All registered meeting attendees are invited to all three events and this is included in your meeting registration fee. ACHA 2018 Meeting name badges will be required for admittance. When you register there will be a spot to note which parts of the evening you plan to attend.
