2020 ACE Summer Symposium

Monday, June 8 – Tuesday, June 9

2020 Summer Symposium Agenda

The 26th Annual Florida Summer Symposium for Adult Education Administrators is GOING VIRTUAL.

Thank you for making the 2020 ACE Virtual Summer Symposium a HUGE success!

The Summer Symposium is an important forum for administrators to gather critical information on current issues related to educating adults, and this year having up-to-date information and the opportunity to hear what is happening around the state is
more critical than ever. This year’s Symposium continues that tradition, but in a new way, as we all find ourselves in times we have never experienced and operating in ways we never imagined.

Thank you to all of our sponsors and exhibitors who made this event possible!
