The concert is presented by Underground Elephant, a leader in performance-based marketing, and the event’s proceeds will contribute to IAF scholarship programs and future research.
The annual convention will be held June 20-22 and is expected to attract over 2,500 attendees. Open to all guests at the convention, the highly anticipated concert taking place June 21st will help IAF and APSCU celebrate the many milestones and accomplishments captured over the last year in the higher education landscape. The APSCU convention is the largest annual gathering of career college executives and brings together a wide array of professionals in the career post-secondary education market. Adding to the event’s coveted agenda this year includes featured speaker President George W. Bush presented by Pearson.
“We are very excited to have Underground Elephant present the band and look forward to hosting an event of such enormity,” said Robert L. Martin, President, Imagine America Foundation.
All convention attendees will be able to attend the concert, however, as part of IAF’s fundraising initiatives, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase VIP and All-Access passes for the evening.

“We are strong, committed advocates of educational advancement, and are proud to have the opportunity to partner with IAF and APSCU at such a high level,” said Jason Kulpa, CEO of Underground Elephant.
The APSCU convention is a crossroad of the private, proprietary higher education sector and will be the home to more than 300 booths. By providing career college professionals and executives with a rich, intellectual environment, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss future and current development in the fast-growing career education sector.
