- Focus Workshops & Webinars
- Host/present live workshops and webinars on topics of interest to the ABACC membership using the ABACC brand
- An "ABACC branded" web event is an ABACC event sponsored by the presenter. ABACC handles all of the logistics including invitations, registrations and web hosting. ABACC limits the number of these events we do each year. ABACC branded events typically draw better attendance than non-sponsored events.
- A "Partner branded" web event is YOUR event and does not require any sponsorship. ABACC can help you promote the event by making sure you have an updated invitation list, working together on workshop content and cross-promoting the event with our membership.
- Corporate Partners are also welcomed to provide sales demonstration-style web events and ABACC can provide some assistance, although we typically do not cross-promote these events.

ABACC Consulting Consortium
ABACC seeks experienced, knowledgeable, and reputable professionals in all areas of interest to institutions of Christian Higher Education. Our consultants must understand the Christian college environment and be willing to work within the cultural and moral guidelines of our institutions. ABACC places a higher preference for accepting and referring new professional consultants to our Corporate Partner Members. Become a Consultant.
Eunice & Fred Spurgat Endowment
Contributing to this fund helps provide financial support developed through the spending rate of this endowment for the awarding of scholarships to member institutions to attend any annual conference, seminar, workshop, training or special topic sessions, or other educational endeavors provided by ABACC. Scholarship recipients will be notified that their event is paid for by "[Your Company] Scholarship from the Eunice & Fred Spurgat Endowment Fund."
ABACC Membership Demographics
ABACC Institutional Members represent a diverse collection of size, geographic location, and denominational affiliation. Our member institutions cover the United States. We also have many member institutions in Canada. Web-based demographic data is available in the "About" section of our website. Please let us know if we can help you break down our institutional members into specific demographic groups for you.
With no "red tape" to deal with here in the ABACC Office, we are able to help our Corporate Partners in a variety of ways - some of which are listed here. If you have specific ideas about how to reach out to our institutional members, please feel free to contact the ABACC office. We are always willing to brainstorm with you and consider new and interesting ways to partner together. Our ultimate goal is to increase the availability of quality products and services to our Institutional Members. If we can help you get your name out in front of our member schools, everyone wins!
