Hosting a Future International ACAC Conference

Hosting the International Association for College Admission Counseling (International ACAC) annual conference on your campus is a fantastic way to showcase your institution to a global audience. The International ACAC conference typically takes place in July over four days.

2019 was a record-setting year with over 1,500 attendees from nearly 100 countries, hosted at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada. The 2020 and 2021 Conferences were held as virtual events for members, due to the impact of COVID-19. The University of New Mexico was the host of the 2022 Conference, bringing over 1,100 people back together after three years apart. A virtual conference was held simultaneously for more than 350 people across the globe. Florida International University hosted the 2023 Conference, and 2024 will take us back to Western University in London, Ontario, Canada.

International ACAC annually invites interested universities and colleges to submit a comprehensive proposal to host a future annual conference (at least two years prior to the actual event).
