2018 Annual Conference
130 Shipyard Drive, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928
Make plans to join your colleagues for our annual conference on beautiful Hilton Head Island. This year's conference is being held March 26-28 at the Sonesta Resort. Please note the new schedule – no Sunday travel required (unless you want some extra island time)!
This year's conference highlights include a poverty simulation from our Global Engagement Committee and an outstanding agenda of sessions as well as time for fun and fellowship. Special guests include our favorite "FED" David Bartnicki, NASFAA President Justin Draeger, SASFAA Past-President Marian Dill, and VASFAA President Biz Daniels. “Survey Says” our evening entertainment will be full of laughter and friendly competition. This will be a valuable time for training, compliance check-ups, networking, and professional growth. You and your office cannot do this alone! Please join us to stay abreast of changing regulations, meet helpful colleagues, and gain knowledge to improve your job performance.
