78 years, you’ve known the College to bring you the premiere educational
experience throughout the year, but especially at the yearly Annual Scientific
Conference. The high-quality educational experience offerings will be what you
expect from ACFAS, but the experience will look a bit different. You may be
getting the education either virtually through the ACFAS Digital Experience or
in-person in Las Vegas. No matter how you get your education, we are excited to
be together again.
If you are coming to Las Vegas, we want to be
