ACB - A Path To the Future: July 3 - July 10, 2020
If you have registered for the ACB 2020 Virtual Convention, you have already taken the first step on the path. If you haven’t registered you can still run the path with us! There are more opportunities to experience and participate in one of the most ambitious virtual conventions in the non-profit world.
There are several ways to join ACB on our virtual journey:
The convention will be streamed on ACB Radio using multiple streams. All general sessions, and much of our afternoon and evening programming will be live streamed on ACB Radio. Listen to ACB Radio from your computer by going to www.acbradio.org and selecting the stream you want to hear. You can also listen to ACB Radio on the telephone by calling (518) 906-1820.
You can follow the convention via the ACB Link app on your smart phone. Stream ACB Radio through ACB Link and access news, announcements, and special content all in the one stop app on your device.
