Educate 2018: Registration Open!

We are thrilled to announce this year's exciting summer Educate program!

Every year AACWP hosts a day-long Educate forum where members can come and learn together and experience something different from our normal meetings. Educate is always a great way to earn your yearly education credits as this meeting counts for more credits than any other throughout the year!

But this year our meeting is going to be very special. Educate 2018 is open to ALL vendors in the industry! So even if you are not a member of AACWP you are welcome to sign up for this one day program. And the topic this year will be beneficial for not only wedding planners, venue coordinators, and catering managers, but also to a variety of other wedding/event industry professionals such as florists, DJs, rental companies, photographers, etc...

Join AACWP for a day full of the ins and outs of social media! All of us rely on social media to draw in new clients and engage with the public and our peers. But it can start to feel a bit overwhelming and confusing sometimes trying to understand the algorithms and picking just the right photo and caption. Come enjoy a day networking with AACWP and other vendors and learn more about a variety of topics regarding social media and your business.

This event will have a fun format with a variety of breakout workshops where you can learn and discuss a variety of topics of your choice. Some topics you can look forward to that day: growing your followers, Instagram videos and stories, social media for business vs. personal, keeping the look of your page consistent and engaging, etc.

Please visit the AACWP home page and check your e-mail for more information on how to register. We look forward to seeing all of you there!
