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.
