The 2019 AACS Annual Convention & Expo will take place September 27-30, 2019 at the MGM Grand Las Vegas. The theme of this year's event is "Power of One - Time to Engage". Our goal is to inform, inspire, and provide guidance on best practices for school owners and administrators.
Do you have a success story you can share with AACS Members? Teach a session on changes that have yielded big results. Do you know other school leaders who are revolutionizing the industry? Host a Fish Bowl or Panel to discuss best practices.
Based on prior attendee surveys, we are looking for proposals on the following sessions:
o Dealing with Common Legal Issues

o Digital Marketing Trends
o From Tour to Enrollment
o Career Fairs
