ACCC Organization

Exposure to Business – ACCC members will have the opportunity to meet and build business relationships with other student leaders and the professional community. The exposure will enrich the student business experience; providing valuable insights into business and presence in the community. These business networking and public services initiatives include current Chamber of Commerce activities, as well as those implemented by the ACCC.

ACCC representatives may be nominated to attend select other Chamber Council meetings and be responsible for reporting to the ACCC membership on major learning to share – opportunities, networking and business advancement.

The ACCC will have an advisory committee consisting of student leaders from their respective schools – officers and members of clubs and organizations recognizing progressive students. This includes student congress, academic organizations and similar college entities. The advisory committee will annually nominate a chair and vice chair for review and approval by the Chamber’s Personnel Committee. The ACCC will be mentored by the Arlington Chamber Young Professionals and Women’s Alliance as part of the Business Development Advisory Council.
