ACCP membership and conference attendance jumps to highest numbers in organization history, with 213 member corporations and 267 attendees at The Conference 2019. ACCP launches new brand—and accompanying website—to better reflect the energy and vibrancy of the field.
Following the success of the Academy, Weeden launches the first annual Conference on Contributions in Orlando with 40 companies attending.
Then, with six successful years of trainings complete, a group of 10 companies decide to start a 501(c)(6) in 2005. The organization—which launches with chartered bylaws, a 15-member Board, and 15 founding companies—decides to focus on corporate contributions, community relations, and employee volunteer management. The Association for Corporate Contributions Professionals states a three-fold mission: Professional Education, Management Resources, and Advocacy.
