WHAT IS IACCA

IACCA offers the very best education and specialized support for all levels of nonprofit conference and retreat center professionals, IACCA has been the home of top performers in the field for over forty years. While many other groups focus on camping, hotels and resorts, IACCA is dedicated to the unique practices and challenges that non-profit institutions face. Our world class faculty is eager to share their knowledge and experience with others, as are our members. Membership and participation in IACCA gives you access to a network of other professionals that understand your work, have worked on the same issues, and have often found solutions. From Thursday coffee breaks, to both online and in-person classes, all the way to our annual conference, IACCA is about helping you provide your guests the best experience possible.

Whether you are new to the industry, or have decades of experience, IACCA has something to offer you, and something to be gained by your involvement. I hope you join today!

Sincerely,

Reuben Todd, IACCA President  

WHAT MAKES IACCA DIFFERENT

  • IACCA IS the ONLY organization for the retreat and conference centers
  • IACCA understands that well-managed retreat and conference centers run differently than camps
  • IACCA helps you to be the best in the field with optional certification
  • The strength of IACCA is education and networking

IACCA IS RIGHT FOR YOU

  • If you have a desire to fill in the gaps of your professional body of knowledge
  • If you value relevant, timely data that is beneficial in administrate decision-making
  • If you desire to develop your own professional voice and leadership abilities
  • If you are searching for support from a community of professionals using a common language
  • If you want to know if you are running your center well/effectively? 

"Being introduced to IACCA by a neighboring conference center director changed my life. I was no longer working in a vacuum confronting new problems without guidance or direction. Now there were colleagues from throughout the country who were willing to share their insights, experience, and knowledge." 
- Richard Goldman, Retired General Manager - Pearlstone Conference Center.

"The professional certification training program for Executive Directors and Administrators led by IACCA certified and seasoned professionals is an amazing journey and provides critical industry tools, tips, and techniques. The experiences in classroom lead foundation courses, conference workshops, seminar working sessions, and the more advanced Capstone training sessions having been engaging and inspire real time ideas to improve personally and professionally. Every session has provided actionable policies and procedures to improve our organization and create efficiencies that allow more time to focus on our mission and values.  Training from these professionals equals a lifetime of lessons learned (the hard way) in a very challenging industry.

After each individual training session I am equipped to teach, coach and mentor staff, volunteers, and our Board of Directors on industry standards and the best ways to be successful. Most recently I was able to use tools provided from the finance portion of our Capstone course to the Finance Committee that immediately provided a clearer picture of the future and easy way to communicate our needs. I am looking forward to additional continuing education opportunities and hope to send more of our staff to learn, grow and apply their knowledge  back to this place!"

-Tom Powell, Executive Director - Caroline Furnace

coffee break webinar series

 

We will be back on November but we hope to see you at the Annual Conference on October!

COFFEE BREAK

2:00pm EST / 1:00 pm CST  / 12:00pm MST / 11:00am PST 

 

IACCA’s Coffee Break Webinars is a wonderful online learning opportunity being offered on the third Thursday of each month at 2:00 PM Eastern time. The concept is simple: We will gather (virtually) at that time, hear a short 20 minute presentation from a leader in our field on topics relevant to us today. We will close with 10 minutes of Q&A and then we can get back to our busy days. This is a solid learning experience that only requires 30 minutes and free for all IACCA members.

 

For instruction on how to access the Coffee Break,

please log in  as a Member and look under EDUCATION.
