Newcomer's Orientation: Navigating the ACHA Annual Meeting

Wednesday, June 1, 7:30 am – 8:45 am

Is this your first ACHA Annual Meeting? If so, make sure you join us for this informal networking event. You'll be surrounded by colleagues who are asking the same questions you are:

  • How do I know what sessions would most benefit me?
  • How do I get involved in a coalition or committee?
  • Can anyone attend Section and Affiliate Networking meetings?
  • I'm here by myself — how do I connect with others who might want to go out to dinner?
  • I've downloaded the mobile app, but now what?

And there will be plenty of seasoned meeting veterans on hand — who remember what their first meeting was like — to help you make the most out of your meeting experience!

Assembly of Representatives

Friday, June 3, 6:15 pm – 7:00 pm

Provide your input on association governance!

Plan to attend the Assembly of representatives and hear association updates, welcome the incoming ACHA president into office, and vote on recommended bylaws amendments.
