The Indiana Association for Adult and Continuing Education (IAACE) is a statewide association of individuals and institutions promoting the education and training of adults.  The organization evolved from a group of adult educators who first met in December 1943 to discuss the future of adult education in Indiana.  Since that time, many changes have occurred in Indiana’s social and economic structure that resulted in an increased need for adult education.

Membership in the Indiana Association for Adult and Continuing Education includes adult education professionals from public school adult education, community education, continuing education programs, business and industry, health and social welfare agencies, corrections, hospitals, libraries, and many other fields.  Members from these diverse groups come together to share information and to form partnerships in order to better serve adults throughout Indiana with education, employability, and career pathways.

This year’s conference will be held on September 27-29, 2023. Our theme is FIT AT FORTY-FORGING THE FUTURE. We encourage you to implement aspects of the theme into your presentations.  We need creative ideas and strategies for teachers, administrators, life coaches, corrections, and support staff.  If you are interested in helping build our future by presenting at the annual IAACE conference in Michigan City, Indiana, please submit the following proposal to:
