Professional development conferences and workshops
Throughout the year, professional development conferences, workshops, and seminars are sponsored by the ACM and by faculty-led projects that receive support from ACM grant-funded programs.
Funding for ACM groups to meet
To encourage and support meetings among consortial colleagues, funding is available to help ACM administrators and faculty caucus at professional conferences, on campuses, or at the ACM office in Chicago.
Meeting organizers can apply for up to $750 to cover meeting costs, such as group meals, a meeting room, or a guest speaker. For information, contact Betsy Hutula at ACM.
Meeting space and travel resources
Meeting space at the ACM consortial office in downtown Chicago is available for use by groups of faculty, staff, and students from the member colleges. ACM also has made arrangements for discounted rates at hotels in Chicago, nationally, and internationally for faculty and staff at ACM member colleges.
