Association for Continuing Higher Education
80th Annual Conference and Meeting
Newport Marriott Hotel • 25 America’s Cup Avenue • Newport, RI
I became involved with ACHE, in 2007, through an adult degree completion program at my institution. We won an award at the regional level and were fortunate to win at the national level. I attended the national conference, to accept the award, and I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and welcoming the people were.
Since that time, I have been “hooked” on ACHE and the great people and experiences the organization offers. The opportunity to meet folks from all over the country who share the same problems and issues has been very rewarding.
I can pick up the phone and seek advice and assistance from a multitude of educational professionals -- and you do not always find that in every organization. ACHE has become an integral part of my professional life, and I really appreciate my ACHE family.
I would encourage anyone who deals with adult and continuing education to give ACHE a try.
