From its earliest days, IACC has always emphasized education at all levels—for members and their employees, for clients and potential customers, for the general public, and for persons interested in career opportunities within the conference center industry. IACC's University Relations Initiatives encompass several programs that seek to further our outreach to that last group—hospitality students and prospective industry employees.

Two major programs assist students (and their teachers) to broaden their education and learn more about conference centers:



In 2002, IACC created new categories of membership to embrace students and faculty at Schools of Hospitality. Offered at the vastly reduced Annual Dues rate of $25.00, either of these membership types provide nearly all the same advantages as Individual Associate Membership, including member discounts for attendance at any IACC educational program.
