2018 ACA Spring Forum Experience

Beyond the Sessions: My 2018 ACA Spring Forum Experience

This year’s ACA Spring Forum was held in Las Vegas at the M Resort, located a few blocks from the strip. From March 14 to March 16, hundreds of people came to hear influential speakers and learn accounts receivables best practices. The conference was heavily focused on compliance and provided curriculum to help A/R professionals earn the Credit and Collection Professional (CCCP), Professional Collection Management (PCM) and other designations. But aside from the educational sessions, there were also great networking opportunities, a booming exhibit floor and Vegas’s always exciting atmosphere. Here are a few things that stick out in my head about ACA Spring Forum 2018:

Although located in the desert, Vegas isn’t always warm enough for the pool.

At 70 degrees, it was too cold to swim

Exhibiting is always more fun when you’re next to a partner. (We love you, Jack.)

March Madness in Vegas is something to spectate – or participate in. Make sure you have someone who knows what they are doing show you the ropes.

I placed a bet at the M Resort’s Sports Book & won!

One does not simply go to Vegas and not question how much power it takes to run the whole city.

Networking with great friends is a must. We even got to see a Roger Weiss magic trick. I don’t want to spoil it, but he knew which one was our card.
