Get Your Networking in High Gear at ACE2018

ACE2018This year’s Annual Conference & Expo (ACE2018), to be held in Indianapolis on June 16-20, offers plenty of fun ways for you to connect, learn, and grow. Plus, this year marks the start of our 100th Anniversary celebration – and we’ve got some special surprises in store.

Join fellow Conference attendees at these networking opportunities:

Career Central: Career Central is back for the second year and better than ever, featuring complimentary services to further your professional development. Services include one-on-one consulting with pros at the Tech Bar and professional photographers available to take your headshot. You’ll also have the chance to try fun gadgets and learn about new apps, social media, and other tech innovations.

Fraud Film Night: Experience ethics training (1.5 CPE credits) with a cinematic flair! Attend a screening of All the Queen’s Horses, an award-winning documentary that examines how a horse-breeding empire was financed by the largest municipal fraud in U.S. history.

Membership Mingle: Get to know IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) a little better and learn about the many membership benefits available to you, including continuing education, CMA® (Certified Management Accounting) and CSCA® (Certified in Strategy and Competitive Analysis) certification, volunteer opportunities, and more.

Peer-to-Peer Exchange: This interactive and informal session enables attendees to exchange ideas in a relaxed environment. Discussion tables will be divided according to nine specialty tracks, and participants will be encouraged to choose a table in the track they want to explore.

To help us officially kick-off our 100th Anniversary celebration, be sure to sign up for 100 Years, 100 Cheers, where we’ll gather at Punch Bowl Social Indianapolis for a fun-filled night of bowling, pool, video games, ping pong, karaoke, and more (additional fee applies).

Other networking opportunities include career coaching, “crash courses” – brief, insightful presentations on a range of interesting topics – and:
  • Meet & Greet following the Annual Meeting of Members
  • Solutions Showcase & Networking Reception
