We also have an open seat on the Consensus Group in the General Interest category. If you or someone you know has an interest in the ANSI process that ACCT follows and fits into this category, we encourage you to visit for more info and the application link.
Board of Directors Nominations are still open until January 24th; sooner is better to give us time to share the candidate's position statements and other campaign materials distributed through ACCT channels like this one.

The first of the candidates are official and you can find their information at

Voting begins on January 26th
Hotel Block Cutoff Date is Quickly Approaching. Don't miss your chance to be included in our negotiated rate, as well as entry into a raffle for complimentary 2023 full conference registration, 3 nights of conference hotel lodging, and a $25 gift card.

It has been brought to our attention that unfortunately companies are reaching out to many of you suggesting that they have our attendee list available for purchase. Please know that this is a scam and this information has not been distributed. We have followed up with each of these organizations requesting they cease and desist all contact with the Association for Challenge Course Technology and its attendees and members.

If you are approached about this or from an organization indicating they are the official housing company for our event please contact and provide a detailed report so we are able to follow-up accordingly.

ICE Reminder

You have two weeks to apply for the Inspector Certification Exam before late fees go into effect. January 20th is the last day to submit for normal testing fees. Applications submitted from January 21tst to January 27th will be subject to those late fees. Any applications received after January 27th will not be approved for the conference testing event but will be shifted to the next testing event.

Please do not delay with your application. That application is NOT a part of your conference registration but can be found HERE.

For the Inspector Certification Prep Course, you are able to register for that in-person Pre-Con up to the morning of February 9th, 2022. That registration IS connected to your conference registration.

**All new Level 1 In-house or Professional applicants do need to attend this course to be eligible to test.**
