From the Chair

Hello CACC Members.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I'm looking forward to getting the group back together later this month. We'll have an opportunity to dive into some compensation trends as we start to plan for 2018 and beyond. Remember, this year we've begun hosting our member meetings at member company facilities. August's meeting will be hosted by Compass Group USA! Thank you to all of our host companies for their hospitality and generosity.

The CACC Board has been meeting periodically over the summer to plan for the remainder of the year and beyond. We're looking forward to wrapping up our plans in the near future. Keep an eye out for communications regarding our member socials and 2018 WorldatWork courses.
If you have any questions, concerns, feedback we would love to hear from you. Please reach out to me directly or one of our other Board members. You can find all of our contact information on CACC's website.
