The AACS LEAD conference is geared to state leadership. There will be ample time to discuss educational issues for our schools. We encourage our state officers and executive directors to identify some leaders within their state who would benefit from this conference and invite them to register and participate. Register for the conference and reserve your hotel room by January 14 for discounted rates. Make plans now to attend the 2018 AACS LEAD Conference, February 6–7. Time at the conference will be well-spent as you enhance your partnership with others serving in the AACS.
