IACCA is the right professional organization for you if…
IACCA educates and supports leaders serving in not-for-profit conference and retreat centers across the nation. Charged with fulfilling their mission, these leaders serve a wide range of groups with a variety of needs.
In general, a conference or retreat center focuses on the experiential learning needs of adult guests. Groups who frequent conference centers often seek a time and a setting which allow for productivity as well as reflection and renewal.
A typical center offers accommodations which include meeting space, lodging, food services and varying programs.
Our centers are usually owned by city or state government agencies, owned by religious organizations or owned by educational agencies such as universities, 4-H and YMCA centers.
We are primarily differentiated from commercial centers by our nonprofit missions and our tax-exempt status.
