The ACC Fiscal Officers Meeting is an annual event that gathers financial mid-level personnel, including controllers, budget directors, and other personnel from 15 Atlantic Coastal Conference (ACC) universities across the east coast. This two-day event features presentations from a variety of speakers with opportunities for networking, enhancing relationships, and sharing best practices with ACC associates.

The agenda for this year’s ACC Fiscal Officers meeting is being finalized. We will begin with registration on Sunday afternoon followed by a reception sponsored by Elliott Davis Decosimo on the fourth floor of Aloft. Monday afternoon we will depart Greenville for a combined bus and (brief) walking tour of the Clemson Campus followed by reception and dinner sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch at Death Valley, home of the 2016 ACC and National Football Champions!
