The School Leaders Summit will be unlike any other event AACS has put together; and we think you’ll agree. So much so that we are willing to back it with the following guarantee to current members of AACS. Register, pay, and attend the full event, and if you don’t think it was worth what you paid, then you’re only obligated to pay us what you felt it was worth. Requests for fee adjustment must be made in writing to AACS within 15 days of the close of the event.

Hotel & Travel:


Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass

5594 W Wild Horse Pass Blvd.

Chandler, AZ 85226

$199 per night – book hotel online
Book by April 11th.

Transportation to Hotel:


Taxis from the airport will run approximately $45 to $55 or you can also request an Uber. This is probably the best mode of transportation to the property. Super shuttle is also available, however, Wild Horse Pass tends to be a last stop for their routes at times, so it could take a little longer.

About:


AACS is hosting our best meeting yet, our School Leaders Summit. Knowledge is power and the knowledge gained at this summit will be the foundation for the future of the beauty education industry and of your business. This program is designed specially for all beauty and wellness school leaders. We invite you to come and be a part of determining the future of this great industry. Key areas of focus include: deregulation, salon-ready vs. licensure-ready, standardization and industry innovation. Start making plans now to join us for what will be a very special experience.

The main reason I come is to network with the other beauty college owners in the classes, in the hallways, at meals or in the bar. This is what we all need, the time to be able to share what is working in our colleges. "United we Stand Divided we Fail"

- Karen Dieckman, Phagans Schools

AACS is hosting our best meeting yet, our School Leaders Summit.
