Thank you to everyone who submitted session proposals for our 35th Annual ACCT Conference & Expo in Cleveland, OH, from January 22nd to 26th, 2025. The initial call for presenters has closed, but the waitlist is now open! Click here to submit a proposal to the waitlist. The deadline for waitlist submissions is December 16, 2024. These submissions will be considered if we need to fill gaps in the session schedule as we draw closer to the event.

Our Workshop Review Task Force has begun evaluating the submissions received to provide us with diverse perspectives. This process should be completed by June 28th, helping ACCT Staff and the Conference Work Group make final decisions. We will notify everyone who submitted by the May 31st deadline about the status of their submission in July 2024. Those selected from the waitlist may be contacted at any time before the conference. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at

If you've got a user record on our website (chances are that you do, if you're receiving our newsletter), you also probably have a profile. The video linked above goes through what you can do with that profile, as well as the profiles that company records have attached to them. If you're listed on a volunteer roster, a version of your profile may be viewable to the public. If your company is accredited, that company profile is publicly viewable in those directories. And if you're a member, other members can search for you and find your profile.
