"Building Castles on
Shifting Sands"

As higher education professionals, we contend with constant changes to policies, procedures, curriculum, staffing and more, particularly as our institutions emerge from two years of COVID-related challenges, and yet we continue to build castles on shifting sands. 


Join us at the historic Plaza Resort & Spa in beautiful Daytona Beach, Florida 

for the Annual FACRAO/FCRAO Higher Education Summit.

Guests can make their room reservations directly with the hotel by calling 1-866-500-5630 
and asking for the FACRAO Annual Summit.

We are pleased to announce that we are accepting session proposals!

 A recent AACRAO article reminds of the benefits of presenting, which provides an opportunity to:

  • Share knowledge, experiences, and recent developments in your field
  • Collaborate with colleagues on best practices and research
  • Advocate for your profession
  • Hone your presentation skills
  • Develop professional contacts
  • Contribute to the overall success of the meeting

Start thinking about how you can make a significant contribution to your profession by presenting alongside your colleagues. We look forward to receiving your session proposals!
