“This Plan is indeed aspirational. Fortunately or unfortunately, it is also essential”

Casey Steinbacher

In order to move with deliberate speed toward the goals of the plan, we need more resources

what for
What For?
  • In the years leading up to the recession, ACCE increased its budget by 100% & its staff by 10%
  • ACCE has kept up or enhanced all key, valued programs, while reducing staff by 20% since ‘08
  • The Plan will create the kind of organization you want . . . We can’t wait 3 years to get there.
