#FamilyStyle Gathering Grants & Photo Challenge


As we all came together to celebrate community and camaraderie, the theme of the 2023 Conference was #FamilyStyle. We embraced this theme with two new programs for the 2023 Conference: FamilyStyle Gathering Grants and the FamilyStyle Photo Challenge. Read more about each below.


#FamilyStyle Gathering Grants

International ACAC is proud to offer FamilyStyle Grants for the purpose of gathering in community with one another. The grants will be offered up to $250 USD for up to 12 members. Selection of these members will be determined based on the plan for the gathering and the region of the gathering, with a focus on spreading the grants over multiple regions. Some ideas for FamilyStyle Gatherings could include (but are not limited to):
  • Coffee - invite all local members to a coffee shop and pay for their drinks.
  • Picnic - supply the food and drink and invite all local members to join you in a park.
  • Party - use the grant to purchase party supplies and food, and invite all local members to join you in a free venue to celebrate community.
We look forward to seeing your creative ideas for bringing people together!

The application will be open through December 2023, or until 12 grants have been distributed.

#FamilyStyle Photo Challenge

In an effort to highlight community and get excited for the 2023 Conference, we encouraged members to submit their #FamilyStyle photos! This can be any group of members gathered together, for any reason. Please see some of our member submissions below.
