49th Annual Meeting

The CACRAO Annual Meeting offers members the chance to come together and share innovative ideas and approaches for promoting post-secondary education throughout North and South Carolina. Annual Meetings feature influential guest speakers discussing important topics in the industry, as well as recognition for outstanding Association members who have contributed to the success and growth of CACRAO.


CACRAO is excited to invite you to join us for the 49th Annual Meeting to be held virtually on Monday, December 7th and Tuesday, December 8th!  In the spirit of cooperation, we are pleased to announce that there is NO CHARGE to participate in this year's programming.

Although we are unable to gather together in Charleston this year, our goal is to still provide a high level of professional development opportunities through live and on-demand sessions, while we also focus on conducting the business of the organization as we head into our 50th anniversary.  The itinerary and descriptions for our live sessions are listed below, and please click here to register.  Zoom links will be emailed 1-2 days prior to the Virtual Annual Meeting.  All times listed for live events are Eastern Standard Time.
