Professional Development

Throughout the year, VACE offers its members opportunities for professional development through activities such as site visits, roundtables, workshops, and other in-service training experiences. The interaction among college and employer members allows for self-improvement and learning.

Annual Conference

Held each Spring, the annual conference provides an opportunity to share timely information and focus on important issues. Noteworthy speakers address major developments in the field, group discussions focus on key areas of program development, and social gatherings provide ample time for members to exchange ideas with new and old colleagues alike. Learn more about this year's conference.

The Innerview Newsletter

Published three times each year, the VACE Innerview newsletter updates and informs the membership of activities sponsored by state and regional associations, presents legal and governmental issues, and highlights other topics of interest to members.

Online Membership Directory and Database

Members establish and maintain a personal membership account with the ability to search for other members by name, organization, member type, and VACE involvement (e.g., conference committee members, board members, etc.). Members have the option of downloading membership information into an Excel spreadsheet and or using the email feature in MemberClicks to communicate with other members. Members must be logged in to the site to access the directory.

VACE Listserv

Members have an account on the organization listserv in order to receive communication and send communication to other members regarding events taking place in their areas in which others may be invited to attend, advertise job opportunities and serve as a forum to share pertinent information.

Committee Participation

A number of committees, including the Annual Conference, Awards, and Technology committees, offer numerous opportunities for member involvement and leadership development.

Exclusive Online Content

Members who login to the VACE website have access to additional content. This includes a searchable member directory, access to your profile, VACE events calendar, board meeting minutes, a job board, our LinkedIn group, and more!

Mentorship Program

All VACE members have the opportunity to join a voluntary mentorship program that allows both new and seasoned members the opportunity to share knowledge and ideas, grow professionally, and continue to build their professional network. This is a year-long, formal relationship where Mentors and Mentees are matched based on geographic location and specified areas of interest. We hope that you will consider becoming a part of yet another way to make VACE great.
