2019 CCCU Presidents Conference

Overview

Join the CCCU for the 2019 Presidents Conference at the Washington Court Hotel located on Capitol Hill.  You will have the unique opportunity to gather with your peer presidents in Christian higher ed to share perspectives, collaborate on solutions, and build relationships. Spouses are welcome and encouraged to attend all of the conference sessions with the exception of the business meeting which is a closed session for presidents only. There will also be a special program on Friday morning specifically for presidential spouses during the business meeting as well as an optional offsite outing on Thursday.

The CCCU planning team is working diligently to secure an impressive array of speakers, panels, and presentations that will challenge and encourage us on the most pressing issues of the day.

More details, speakers, and registration will be available in Summer 2018.
