Connections & Networking

Fall Fest is more than “just” a conference – it’s a comprehensive experience! Unwind, relax, laugh, learn, and connect. Members tell us every year that the most enjoyable, beneficial, and FUN aspect of Fall Fest is meeting new people and reconnecting with friends from around the state. You won’t find a more engaging atmosphere anywhere in the state! Fall Fest offers the best snacks and coffee all day long! 

— Competence Over Compliance

Sessions for Everyone

No matter your area of expertise, the Fall Fest Accounting Conference offers sessions ranging from all areas of practice. Tax, audit, government, business and industry…you name it! You’ll walk away from Fall Fest with more than just 16 hours of CPE – you’ll gain new insights and perspectives. PLUS you can satisfy your 2-hour annual ethics requirement!

I love the two-day SCACPA events, they are the main reason I keep the membership.
Fall Fest is an excellent way to broaden your perspective by meeting new people and learning about interesting topics with real professionals.
