This year’s annual meeting will be held virtually on October 11-13, 2022, and the theme this year is “Reinvent for Success.”

One thing we’ve all learned over the last couple of years is that the world is a very different place than it was in 2019. Two+ years after COVID turned our lives upside down, we’re still dealing with variants and surges, supply chain disruptions, the great resignation, and now the global repercussions of the war in Ukraine.
The world is certainly different now. The question is how are you changing to meet the needs of your clients in this new environment? Do you need to consider new offerings? Have you rethought how you’ll offer services in the new hybrid world? Should you be targeting new markets or industries?

This year’s SAC annual meeting is focusing on helping you reinvent for success:

  • How should your practice change to be successful in 2023?
  • How will today’s global trends impact your business—and that of your clients?
  • How can you build trust across cultures when so many things are uncertain?
  • Is there a way to make your marketing more effective?
  • The next generation is here: Do you know how to reach Millennial and Gen-Z buyers?
  • How can you effectively build an audience for your offerings?

Building on the format that worked well last year, and with new interactivity included, here’s what you can expect:

  • Three shorter days with staggered starting times each day for different geographies
  • Networking time between each sessions
  • Improved presentation formats to keep things interesting
  • More interactivity within sessions
  • Fun activities throughout the day
  • More breakout sessions, including a focus on Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and our popular Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions.

 Reinvent for Success.
