“All presenters were EXCELLENT. This is my third year at this course and I always learn something with every speaker. I always enjoy this course and LOOK FORWARD TO IT EVERY YEAR. It is an excellent overall review.” – 2016 Attendee

ACC knows the days are long at our Board Review course, so we’re live streaming the presentations to several different rooms in our building, enabling you to move around without missing anything. In addition to our main conference room, which seats 95 people, we are also streaming the presentations to a cozier conference room (with natural light!) that seats 20, and to a lounge area where you can watch from the comfort of several couches. If you’re feeling fidgety during the course, or just want a change of scenery, please try one of the other viewing locations!
