The 2017 Convention carried the theme “Together We CAN Make ASAC Greater.” Attendees participated in programs from Chuck Gallagher on Friday, Dr. Dennis Bausman & Bill Sheehan on Saturday. For current and perspective members, it was an opportunity to learn about:
- overcoming adversity
- improving communication in the workplace
- understanding financial performance indicators
- digital marketing
It was also a great opportunity to network with members from the other chapters in the Carolinas. Participants were present from all four chapters – an opportunity that only presents itself a few times a year.
For new members, the Convention is always the most impactful activity they attend. Not only do they get to witness the geographic extent of ASAC, but they also are afforded the opportunity for visibility.
Asheville is also an interesting town to visit. Destinations for the Convention are chosen based on venue availability and location, as well as what the city has to offer. Fortunately for the participants, Asheville has over 40 breweries and a scenic downtown area to visit, nestled in the mountains. Whitewater rafting and a brewery tour were the main activities on the agenda.
We can’t wait for the 2018 Convention in Wilmington, NC!
