TIME TO REFRESH
CPE Vacation Clusters Life is full of challenges, demands grow, and others clamor around you with more expectations. Youâ€™re taxed, strained and challenged to do more, and your energy levels just cannot deliver. Refresh yourself by escaping the ordinary. Attend a 2012 CPE cluster and stimulate your brain with informative educational seminars while making time before or after training to enjoy the beach or play golf on Hilton Head Island or shop and eat at local restaurants in beautiful downtown Charleston. When your break from the ordinary is over, you will be ready to return to the office refreshed and ready to tackle your next big challenge, relieved that youâ€™ve earned some CPE and gained some energy to make it through the remainder of the year.
HAVE YOU HEARD? SCACPA conferences, workshops and some seminars are going paperless.
