Industry Professionals are important constituents of ACCE; in fact, Practitioners are equal partners with Educators in the creation and continued leadership of ACCE. Practitioners provide valuable input with regard to the creation of accreditation standards and practices. In addition, they offer extensive support services to their associated academic programs. The information and resources provided here were primarily developed and delivered at the annual "IAB Event" held each February at the Mid-Year ACCE Meeting. IAB or Industry Advisory Board.
This annual program provides real value to Industry Professionals and IAB Members by:
Increasing the understanding of the roles and responsibilities of being a member of an IAB.
Developing meaningful industry participation at the local IAB level.
Developing and supporting a network of industry professionals who can exchange ideas in an open forum.

2022 ACCE Industry Advisory Board Event
Take Your Industry Advisory Board to the Next Level!
The only event of its kind, ACCE's IAB Event is a "must attend" program for Advisory Board Members and Program Chairs. - Whether you belong to a long-standing IAB, or are in the early stages of pursuing accreditation, attend this event to share and compare what has been most successful for Industry Advisory Boards and Construction Programs across the U.S.
This event, as part of the 2022 ACCE MidYear Conference, will kick off a great week for Construction Education. Two additional organizations, AIC and NEF, will be joining us that week with their annual meetings being held at the same venue throughout the week.
ACCE events are a great way to build relationships with educators, to provide input for program curriculum, and to network with industry peers and colleagues from across the country.
Plan Now to Join Us at the OMNI Las Colinas Hotel in Las Colinas, TX (near Dallas) on February 23, 2022!
