First I would like to thank Bo Hightower, Executive Committee, Biff Hulsey, and our Sponsored Vendors for the excellent conference, Biltmore Tour and Dinner; it was the best conference ever, everyone enjoyed the entire event. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for support, confidence and trust in me to provide leadership as your next ACCFO President. It gives me great honor to serve such an outstanding group and I will do my very best to provide the same type of leadership as provided by so many President’s before me. ACCFO will be celebrating its 25th year in 2017 and with the guidance and support of all our members it will be a year to remember. I would like to encourage all the community colleges to start making plans to attend the 2017 ACCFO Fall Conference at Courtyard Carolina Beach Oceanfront by Marriott in October 2017.
ACCFO has a great tradition of providing current professional development opportunities to its members and we will providing informative sessions at our 25th conference. Our executive staff and the anniversary committee will be striving to put together a program that will show the fabric and backbone of ACCFO. It is a challenging time for so many of our community colleges and with your involvement in ACCFO, we all can provide support and guidance to one another to provide the best facilities possible for our students and staff. Please join in and help make ACCFO a rewarding resource for all ACCFO members. You can reach me at Terri.Ashcraft@cpcc.edu or call me at 704.330.6076.
