The ACC Students’ Association’s mission is to encourage student success by being the voice of students while enhancing the student life experience. We are run by a team of elected student council members and professional staff who work together to bring services, events and support to the ACC student body. Each spring, you’ll cast a vote for the next school year’s ACCSA Executive Council positions: President, Vice President of Finance and Vice President of Events & Marketing. Then, in September, we hold a General Council election to select 10 student representatives to bring forth student perspectives from throughout our college. These council members meet on a biweekly basis and work with college representatives on important initiatives that matter to you all while earning an honorarium and getting real, workplace experience!
The ACCSA is a great opportunity for you to get involved and make some key connections within your college community and the business community as well. Who could ask for a better, more flexible job than getting paid to represent your classmates on issues, and events that matter to you!?”
Your ACCSA Executive Council for 2017-2018:
Anneliesea Parkinson, President
Tanya Salmon, Vice President of Events & Marketing
Ana Camelo Gutierrez, Vice President of Finance

ACCSA Affiliated Clubs:
Clubs (an association or organization dedicated to a particular interest or activity) are a great way to get out and meet new people who have common interests and to spend time with like-minded individuals. Clubs also help to give you some hands on experience with event planning and volunteer management.
