36th Annual National Student Advocacy Conference
The 36th Annual National Student Advocacy Conference for the American Student Association of Community Colleges is now open for registration. Early-bird registration rates are available until December 31, 2021. Regular registration will be available until February. However, colleges get the best rates by registering and making travel plans early.
The conference brings student leaders from across the nation together to discuss federal issues facing community college students. ASACC has worked on a variety of issues over the past three decades including: Pell grants, student loans, employee educational assistance, and tax-free student loan payments. We continue to advocate for responsible increases to these programs and join our colleagues in the higher education community to push for access to higher education for all.
The conference will feature speakers and presenters on ASACC’s three themes: leadership, citizenship and advocacy. The majority of sessions at this conference will focus on advocacy. Students will learn about the issues and how to present them at sessions on Saturday and Sunday of the conference. On Monday and Tuesday of the conference students have the opportunity to put their new skills to use by taking those issues to meetings with their Congressional Representatives or their staff members.
The conference is the biggest student meeting held annually in Washington, D.C. and the only conference that focuses exclusively on community college students. More than 10,000 students have participated in the conference over the past 36 years.
We are anticipating great interest as colleges begin traveling again. The conference space limits us to 400 participants, so the sooner you register the better. More information can be found under the Spring 2022 tab on our website. You can also email us at email@example.com or for call/text (801) 368-2289.
We hope you will join us in Washington D.C. for this experience of a lifetime. #ASACC2022
