BUSINESS 2013 AACS ANNUAL CONVENTION PREVIEW BY BEAUTYLINK STAFF “ I love coming to AACS events because it ensures that I am on top of how our industry is evolving. It helps me network, look at the changing landscape of education, regulations and the beauty industry, and remain competitive amongst these changes. It’s these events that I feel gives me — FRANK TRIEU, Evergreen Beauty College (Bellevue, WA) the greatest return on my membership. E ach year, cosmetology school owners, directors, managers, admissions and compliance staff join together in one place for a weekend of motivation, education and lasting memories. This year’s AACS Annual Convention & Expo will be at the newly renovated Bally’s Las Vegas, November 15-18. Time and time again, attendees tell us these events are priceless. Rhonda Renner Reese from Educators of Beauty in Sterling, IL, told us she would have lost her family’s business if she had not attended AACS events each year. Caryl Ann Johnson from I.T.S. Academy of Beauty in Tempe, AZ, said, “I have been to a lot of events elsewhere and sometimes wonder why. AACS has what I need to keep up with the ever-changing industry, and if I have an issue, I can ask. I pretty much do not waste my time elsewhere.” With an exciting schedule, all to be held at a top-notch hotel in the middle of the strip on Las Vegas Boulevard, we can’t think of any reason why you shouldn’t be there. From exciting scholarship announcements to industry-leading speakers, we can’t stress enough the importance of attending in November. “This last year has presented many challenges for our schools,” said David Yocum, chair of the Annual ” Planning Committee. “Our goal for the 2013 Annual Convention is to identify the major issues that schools face and provide sessions designed to inform, educate and offer constructive solutions to those challenges.” Among those challenges—admissions. With low enrollment nationwide, this year’s event will include a full marketing and admissions block of sessions, including a half-day workshop with admissions gurus Norton | Norris. The schedule will also include sessions on culture, adding skin care and nail programs to your curriculum, legal issues, standing out from your competition, the New FSA Audit Guide, technology, social media and so much more. (A complete schedule can be viewed at All attendees are invited to the Annual Government Relations Event (for an added fee), where this year you can attend an exclusive concert with 2010 America’s Got Talent winner Michael Grimm. And we aren’t kidding! Grimm and his band will rock the house where you can dance, partake in a meet & greet and have fun. Enjoy sponsored breakfast and lunch daily with guest speakers, concurrent sessions to choose from, an Exhibitor Showcase, which features more than 200 booths, evening receptions and special general sessions designed specifically for you and tailored to meet the needs of key issues you deal with on a daily basis.
