Convention is ACA’s biggest event of the year, bringing together members and accounts receivable management industry professionals who are part of your community. This is the event where you can build new friendships that can last a lifetime.
Here are a few ways ACA is helping you connect with your people:
- ACA will host a First Timers & New Members Reception and a Young Professionals Reception before the official kickoff of Convention, giving you a chance to meet professionals and learn about their background and work in the industry. You can even make plans to attend sessions together.
- The breakout education sessions are another way to discuss industry hot topics with your peers. With more than 25 sessions to choose from, you’ll walk away with a breadth of knowledge to share and implement at your company.
- There will be fun activities too, including your chance at ax-throwing with your peers at Stumpy’s Hatchet House, as well as events for women in collections.
