ACT Enrollment Management Summit
The ACT Enrollment Planners Conference is now the ACT Enrollment Management Summit
For 33 years, ACT has convened the Enrollment Planners Conference, a one of-a-kind professional development and networking event.
Building on this experience, and recognizing that the role of enrollment managers is changing and now more challenging than ever, we are relaunching this conference as the ACT Enrollment Management Summit to better address the professional development needs of enrollment managers.
We hope you’ll join us in Denver—the Mile High City—for our inaugural ACT Enrollment Management Summit.
