Every year, the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) meets for their annual meeting in Orlando, FL. ABHE serves as our accreditors, recognizing CCBS as an official designated educational institution along with the US Department of Education.

At the Annual Meeting, delegates from all of the cooperating institutions are invited to gather for a time of fellowship, training, and instruction on proper accrediting principles. Each year, CCBS sends some its administrative team to participate, vote, and learn.

To learn more about the Annual Meeting, visit the ABHE website. The following quote comes from their website concerning the meeting,

The Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) Annual Meeting serves as the rallying point and official gathering for some 200 institutions of biblical higher education in North America. It is the annual occasion where leaders of our movement—presidents, trustees, and other educational leaders–connect, confer and sharpen their leadership gifts and abilities. In addition to an extensive and rich array of networking and professional development opportunities, the meeting also promises inspiration as together we worship God and seek Christ’s favor and direction. It is an occasion for refreshing our spirits, renewing our mutual calling, and reminding us that together, by the grace of God, we aspire to be a spiritually robust, culturally relevant, and professionally respected 21st century movement whose collective contributions to global gospel impact are multiplying in their scale, scope and significance.

The keynote speakers for 2018 include Crawford Loritts and Bob Russell.
