Promotes professionalism of PHCC association executives through seminars, information-sharing and by encouraging local and state associations to employ professional staff.
AEC Benefits the Exec and the Contractor
The core purpose of AEC is to act as a resource, consultant, and advisor to the PHCC Board of Directors and AEC Members. AEC is governed by a Board of Directors elected annually by the membership. Funding for AEC comes solely from membership dues and conferences.
AEC Spectrum Management Conference is dedicated to education, networking, information-sharing and building deeper relationships between execs.

The next Spectrum Conference will be in Summer 2017. Registration and Spectrum scholarships will available soon.
