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 25th annual conference will be held at the Historic Davenport Hotel in Spokane, Washington, from October 24‒27, 2019. This year’s conference theme is: ACRA at 25 - Exploring Our Past to Build Our Future. Using our host city’s frontier history as our impetus, sessions and events during the conference will focus on looking into ACRA's past as we build the programs that our members need. This includes introspective sessions examining where the organization has come from and where we would like to go, as well as connections between ACRA firms and those who use the data we produce.
A Call for Sessions has been posted to request ideas for conference talks and panels. Proposals are due March 15, 2019. If you are interested in submitting an idea, also check out our Manual for Speakers for more detail about planning sessions. Additional details on planned sessions, events and workshops will be posted as data becomes available.
