ACFO-ACAF is proud to announce the Mental Health and Wellness Seminar, a new addition to our 2020-21 Joint Career Development Program (JCDP) calendar.

The Mental Health and Wellness Seminar (February 10, 2021) will feature speakers from across the country offering a mix of insightful, motivating true stories and practical tools and strategies for managing your own mental health and wellness. More information on our speakers can be found here.

We know this has been an incredibly stressful year for our community, and with year-end deadlines around the corner and COVID-19 numbers rising across the country, we wanted to give our members an opportunity to put their mental health first.

The Mental Health and Wellness Seminar will be offered free of charge to all ACFO-ACAF members. It will be a live streamed event held on February 10, 2021 from 11 am to 4 pm ET.

Registration for the Mental Health and Wellness Seminar is now open. To register, click here:
