The event kicks off with the highly anticipated Professional Issues Update, an exclusive look into what’s facing the profession (and how SCACPA will help you handle it). Thought leaders from every facet of the profession will share the knowledge you need to take 2022 head-on.

Featured speakers include renowned corporate ethics speaker Aaron Beam, SCACPA contributors Lynn Nichols, Melisa Galasso and David Peters and more! 

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.
