Whether this is your first time or your twentieth, these suggestions will help you make the most of your ACT conference experience.
Before the conference ever starts, you can start planning your time and activities. The attire encouraged for the conference is business casual.
In addition to a paper program, ACT attendees can have access to full conference information and attendees before stepping foot in Denver. Browse sessions and keynotes or check out who else will be in attendance. You could even do some pre-networking if you’re keen. The app will be available for download closer to the conference.
ACT’s Buddy program is a great opportunity for first time attendees to connect with long-time ACT members who have attended conferences in the past. It’s also a chance to make an easy contact, so you feel welcome and at ease. Conferences can be intimidating when you don’t know someone, or when you want to expand your network but don’t know anyone other than your coworkers. Request a Buddy and get paired up before you arrive!
The easiest way to buddy up is during your registration process – just request a buddy and we’ll do the rest. If you’ve already registered, reach out to Elizabeth Denton, Vice Chair of the Professional Development Committee, and she will make sure you have a pal for #ACT20.
There are a lot of great tours and social opportunities built into the ACT conference experience. Each conference destination offers unique experiences that have been curated for attendees. These tours are optional, but participating through ACT gives you a seamless and hassle-free experience. Tour information coming soon!
Start your #ACT20 experience off right and continue through with these special offerings.
Sunday night is the official kick-off for #ACT20 and it’s a great opportunity for new attendees to meet fellow colleagues and other new attendees. This opportunity starts at 5 p.m. and the opening reception follows at 6 p.m.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and discuss regularly with ACT’s leadership any potential actions that may need to be taken.
