Each year in June, the ACM sponsors the Program Directors and Visiting Faculty Conference, a meeting and professional development workshop for on-site staff and visiting faculty for ACM off-campus study programs.

The conference typically includes sessions on topics related to areas such as pedagogy, resources at program sites for teaching and intercultural learning, health and safety, and assessment of student learning.

ACM staff coordinate programming for the event and lead sessions, along with faculty and staff from ACM colleges, staff from the program sites, and guest speakers from outside the consortium.
