ACS is the how in Howard County

2016 Annual Member Meeting

We are Stronger Together

ACS is the how in Howard County. Last year at our interactive "Un" Annual Meeting we asked our members to provide input on how we can help you Make a Difference.
More than 120 ideas were generated. We want to share with  you how we implemented some of those ideas from last year and we want your input now so we can continue the conversation with a more in depth discussion on the following topics:
  • Collaboration
  • Mentoring
  • Engagement
  • Communication
Please come prepared with your ideas on how you could benefit from any or all of these topics.
Executive Director's are encouraged to bring a staff or board member to the meeting and register them as their guest.
