This will be the first Annual Meeting for our new President and CEO, Dr. Kirk Nooks. The Annual Meeting is an opportunity to meet Dr. Nooks and hear his message for the future of COE.

The meeting will include a variety of topics on current trends and best practices. Several new workshops have been added to the agenda. The 2023 Annual Meeting will also include "Affinity Group Meetings" for each peer group. These meetings will be a time for institutions from our peer groups to gather information, feedback and insight on various topics.

All workshops required for achieving and maintaining accreditation will be offered (The Self-Study and The Annual Report). In addition, workshops are scheduled for gaining and/or renewing certification to participate on accreditation visiting teams (team member and leader). General sessions will feature special guest speakers and the members’ Annual Business Meeting will be held on Thursday, November 16.
