ACES Convenes First Independent Members' Meeting

January 10-11, 2018
University of Minnesota
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Since its founding, the annual meetings of the membership of the Academy of Community Engagement Scholarship had been held in conjunction with the annual conferences of partnering associations. All of that changed in January of 2018, when ACES convened its annual Members' Meeting on the campus of the University of Minnesota and on the Internet by way of videoconferencing technology. Hosted by ACES member Andy Furco, Associate Vice President for Public Engagement, University of Minnesota, the meeting spanned two days and afforded members the opportunity to have extended conversations about topics of critical importance to the Academy. The gathering resulted in the development of an action-oriented agenda meant to guide ACES activity over the following year.
