2023 IACAA Annual Conference Registration 

Join us for the IACAA Annual Conference scheduled for April 30 - May 2, 2023 in Springfield, IL. IACAA is excited to announce this year's theme - Building Community DifferenceMakers.

This year, IACAA is pleased to announce Austin J. Franklin as out Keynote Speaker. Austin J. Franklin is the CEO and Co-founder of Good-Natured Life. The company was established in 2015 when he was 20 years old and a junior at Hampden-Sydney College. The mission of the company is to spread kindness, friendliness, and patience (KFP) and to uplift minds across the world.
We each have the ability to make a meaningful difference as leaders. However, many fail to execute the fundamental underpinnings to do so. When we make a meaningful difference, lives become inspired, situations positively shift, and desired results are often achieved. - Austin J. Franklin
In this engaging and inspirational keynote, Austin J. Franklin leads a discussion that invites attendees to explore research-based ideas that will position their organizations for a future-ready and thriving workplace. Get ready to Think Like a DifferenceMaker Leader!
