Each year ACRA presents a dynamic and multifaceted convention to bring together CRM practitioners and those in related fields. Our annual meeting is a prime venue to exchange ideas and meet new colleagues. It is through member participation that our conference program can expand each year, bringing new ideas and evoking teamwork as we strive to make our industry stronger. Our 24th annual conference will be held at the Netherland Plaza Hilton Hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio, from September 6‒9, 2018. This year’s conference theme—Local Voices, National Trends: Heritage Transforming Communities—highlights Cincinnati’s place as a national leader in historic preservation at the local level and places a focus on Section 106 and CRM bringing local voices into the federal process.
The Call for Sessions is now open, and proposals are due by March 15, 2018.
Registration will open in March or April, and discounted hotel rates will be available starting then. Early bird conference registration is typically available until mid July. Last year's conference in Philadelphia had an attendance of over 170 CRM practitioners, experts, business-owners, managers, students, and people in associated industries! ACRA's 2017 Conference was held at The Warwick Hotel in beautiful Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the theme was Continental Congress to Capitol Hill—Sustaining a Strong CRM Industry, reflecting the significant historical roots of our host city and the importance of our field.
