The Annual Meeting, a 2½-day conference focusing on developments in association management and congress organisation, is held in January each year. The Annual Meeting programme is designed with input from members and the Education Working Group.
Contemporary topics and debates are supplemented with case studies to share experiences and innovations. External experts contribute on specialist topics. The principal governance meeting of AC Forum, the General Assembly, usually takes place during the Annual Meeting.
As the educational programme for each Annual Meeting is being built, members are invited to submit case studies to be considered to form part of the programme. All submitted case studies are reviewed by the Education Working Group and the Board.
The Annual Meeting and General Assembly are hosted by a different European city each year.
