Regarding ACCE's IAB Workshop:  "I also wanted to take this opportunity to share some take-aways from my trip to Mobile, [while attending] the ACCE Advisory Board Best Practices Event.  I think someone from our Board (hopefully multiple people) needs to attend every year.  I never thought our involvement would be THAT important to the program, never know how much affect we have."

-Matt Harvell, IAB member from Georgia Southern

"It was pretty easy.... I've had three jobs since graduation and my experience keeps raising my salary."

"The construction profession is so much more than means and methods in executing a project. In our ever more complex world, the language of construction tends to be that of contracts and accounting more than whalers and tie backs. That is why I have come to cherish the background and perspective I received from my construction management education."

-Max Jordan

Program Recognition (Non-Degree)

In response to the concept of quality education in construction, The American Council for Construction Education has created a recognition program for non-degree, career related education programs. This effort to recognize the providers and programs which have a quality process and content is aimed at providing education other than skills training. This is NOT accreditation, as it is not aimed at degree granting programs.
