The content and displays that were on exhibit at the 2014 annual conference in Orlando have been transported to the ACUI Central Office in Bloomington, Ind. There, the relics will be repurposed so that the history of the Association lives on long after the 100th anniversary celebration ends. Some ideas for the longevity of the materials include:
- A virtual museum
- A permanent display at the ACUI Central Office
- Displays to view at the 2014 regional conferences
Stay tuned for how you can walk through the history of ACUI now and in the future!
