From the Chair

Hello CACC Members -

I'm sure many of you are gearing up for, or are already in the middle of, open enrollment season. The end of the year is always a busy time for Total Rewards professionals, but I'm hopeful that you will be able to find some time to sneak away and join us at our next member meeting! We're designing this meeting to engage everyone in roundtable discussions on important topics facing all of us at work. We hope that you'll be able to come out of this member meeting with fresh ideas that will be useful in your daily challenges.

Also, keep your eye out for more information about our holiday social event coming up later this year!

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.
