ACAC Events

American College Application Campaign®

We suggest that states host their 2014 American College Application Campaign program during the week of November 10-14. However, the program implementation dates can vary by state in order to meet the needs of the state. When available, and as provided by the state, the dates for each state's ACAC program are included on their state profile page. State profile pages can be viewed on the ACAC Main Page by clicking on the state.

National Convening

Each year, the American College Application Campaign team coordinates a national convening. The goals of the national convening are to:

  • Provide a collaborative, discussion-driven opportunity for experienced and new states to share and learn effective practices and strategies for implementing a College Application Campaign program.
  • Provide the tools and guidance necessary for new states to immediately begin planning for the implementation of a successful fall College Application Campaign pilot program in their state.
  • Educate states on the resources, training, and guidance ACAC can provide as each state implements the initiative.

The 2014 national ACAC Convening was hosted June 18-19 in Charleston, SC through the generous support of USA Funds. ACAC representatives from all 50 states and the District of Columbia were invited to attend the convening. During the 2014 convening, ACAC state representatives met jointly with College Goal Sunday state representatives in order to discuss best practices and opportunities to collaborate and link these two important efforts. If you have questions about the national ACAC Convening, please contact ACAC at acac@acenet.edu.

Trainings and Webinars

The ACAC team is available to provide technical assistance to your state as you convene your state’s College Application event steering committee, train your high school site coordinators, and work through the various logistics necessary to implement a successful program. These can be done in-person, through webinars, and/or during a conference call. Please contact the ACAC team at acac@acenet.edu for any assistance your state may need.
