2015 Conference Highlight Video

  "This was by far, the best conference I have ever been to! From the presentations to the venue, the food/service to the camaraderie, it truly was a remarkable experience. And everyone I spoke to felt exactly the same way. ACCP hit this one out of the park… can’t wait to see what you have planned for us next year!"

"Awesome event! Loved the speakers, the venue, seeing old friends, making new ones and came back with a boat load of new ideas. JOB WELL DONE!!!! It just keeps getting better."
--Helen Engelhardt

"Thank you for an amazing-amazing experience at The Breakers! Once again, I've come home with a boat load of inspiration and information! It is always such a pleasure to connect with other catering professionals specifically in Private Clubs. I feel we are in such a small and unique nitch.....I gained so much from our break out sessions and cocktail parties (Yes...I can learn while drinking out of a Vodka Luge!)"
--Liz Cordano

Education should be fun and inspirational!
