The in-person Annual Conference will take place November 3–4 in Houston, Texas. The in-person Conference will provide attendees with high level and high-quality content over two days, in a variety of learning formats – from large group sessions and panels with Q&A opportunities, to smaller, hands-on breakout sessions. Attendees will also benefit from the immersive and interactive nature of an in-person event, as well as the face-to-face networking and engagement with their CSR colleagues.

The ACCP Annual Corporate Citizenship Conference is a must-attend event for corporate citizenship professionals.

Over two dynamic days of learning, conference attendees will hear from industry leaders, network with peers, gain practical insights and best practices to take back and use to innovate programs, and identify resources that can help them grow their skills. Attendees leave feeling inspired and equipped with connections and resources to lead their company’s corporate citizenship practice to deliver even greater impact.

ACCP Conference 2021 features:

General Sessions

An opportunity to hear from some of the most dynamic CSR professionals in the industry and learn first-hand how they are innovating their programs to stay ahead of the fast-changing CSR landscape. You’ll leave inspired and with new ideas for your own work.

Learning Labs

In these breakout sessions, attendees have the opportunity to explore a specific topic of interest with a small group of peers. Ask questions. Share best practices. Discuss challenges and propose solutions. Walk away with practical knowledge and insights – and some new connections.

*These sessions will only be available at our in-person Conference in Houston. Agenda is subject to change.

Safety is our Priority

The safety of our attendees, ACCP staff, and our board is our highest priority. We are closely monitoring both CDC and local Houston guidelines around the COVID-19 pandemic. We are also working with our contracted hotel on enhanced cleaning and safety protocols, to ensure a high-quality conference in a safe environment. We will be sharing additional safety protocols as we get closer to November.
