      • be an active contributing member of society;
      • maintain eligibility for participation in all Conference-sanctioned athletic events.

      • evaluate their individual athletic programs to ensure adherence to all rules and regulations of the ACCC and NJCAA;
      • provide opportunities for athletic competition for its students against the students of other Member institutions.
    3. The Conference should:
      1. assist its Members in implementing and expanding athletic programs for intercollegiate athletic competition;
      2. promote harmony and cooperation among its Members;
      3. promote Conference-sanctioned athletic programs to the general public;
