|Hello, IAACE Community!
I am honored to serve as your president of IAACE. I remember going to my first conference committee meeting approximately seven years ago. I was so excited to be a part of such an amazing organization and fun people! I am humbled to follow the steps of Ted Pearson; he has done an amazing job for our organization.
2020 has proven to be a very challenging year for everyone. Even though the conference was canceled, I was in total amazement as I watched teachers all over the state rise to the challenge of teaching virtually! I am in awe! IAACE has such amazing educators.
As we venture into the school year with concerns of COVID, we want you to know IAACE is here to support our members. Through opportunities for professional development, advocacy, and collaboration to keep adult education strong in Indiana’s state.
Your current committees and chairs are listed below for 2020/2021:

Communication: Currently Seeking Volunteer
Membership: Cynthia Warner-Lowe
Employer Engagement: Laura Elsbrock.
