Young Professionals

In 2014, SAC actively sought to encourage its member firms to get their YPs involved in the industry.  SAC now holds YP-only sessions at its annual conference and YP events are being held across the country.  SAC formed a YP Council in the fall of 2015 to ensure that YPs from coast to coast are communicating and collaborating.  If you're interested in participating locally, please contact Sharon Clark-Koufis at (905) 677-1353 ext. 202.
