- Beans, Brains and Social Committee (combined in 2018)
The Professional Improvement and Social Committees were combined at the 2018 Annual Meeting.
This newly combined committee comes up with ideas for professional development programs and social activities for both AACES members and non-members. They typically host “lunch and learn” or what we call “Beans & Brains”. These are usually presented quarterly but have also been every other month. Topics and number of events are up to the committee. Committee members obtain speakers, plan meetings, reserve the location, promote the event, plan meals, and often prepare lunch. Spring Fling, Fall Festival, and Business after Hours are a few of many AACES social events. Join this committee and help plan, organize, and promote activities that develop esprit de corps, and feed our brains and our tummies!
