ACLS Conference of Executive Officers (CEO)

Loading...

 

Information for Convention & Visitors Bureaus

The ACLS Conference of Executive Officers (CEO) meetings are an excellent opportunity to showcase your city's facilities and attractions for an important group of meeting planners. The CEO is composed of the executive directors of the 74 member societies of the American Council of Learned Societies (see list). The group's fall meeting, held the first or second weekend in November, is both a city-hosted familiarization trip and a business meeting for CEO members. It meets in a convention city of interest to CEO members for their own organizations' annual meetings and regional conferences.

For meeting specifications, see " ACLS Conference of Executive Officers 'Familiarization' Trip Overview." If you are interested in hosting a meeting or have any questions, please contact Sandra Bradley, director of member relations, by email or by phone at 212-697-1505 x123.

Listed below are CVBs that have hosted CEO "fam" trips over the last decade, along with information on ACLS member society meetings booked and/or under consideration for each city. For the locations of upcoming society meetings, see Society Meetings Schedule.
