From the Chair

Happy New Year, CACC Members!

In keeping up with the New Year, we have an exciting change for 2017: 

Member Meetings are moving!

In response to member feedback and in an effort to increase involvement, member organizations will host our 2017 Meetings. So, save the date AND the location!

  • February 8th - The Employers Association
  • May 10th - TIAA
  • September 13th - TBD
  • November 8th - Compass Group

We hope these locations provide our members a change of scenery and give our hosts a chance to showcase their place of work. 

(Please note:  time and format of the meetings will remain unchanged.)

Note:  Our September Member Meeting is in need of a host - please email me directly if your organization is interested. 

As we begin our new fiscal year as well, I would like to thank the 2016 Board and Committees for their dedication and support. Be sure to join us at the annual meeting, February 8th, to meet the incoming Board. 

Cheers to another year

  • Investing in careers.
  • Investing in professionals.
  • Investing in community.
