The annual SCASS Ball takes place at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday 5 April 2014. Themed around the 1920s, The Great Scassby will see over 150 students from the area get together for a fun-filled evening featuring a three-course dinner, DJ, live band and other entertainment.
The evening is generously sponsored by CMA Financial Recruitment, one of the society’s strongest supporters, and there will be a charity raffle in aid of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance with some incredible prizes up-for-grabs.
The event starts from 7pm in the Mike Channon Suite and will finish at approximately 1am. Guests are encouraged to come in themed clothing, however we realise this won’t be possible in which case the dress code is black tie.
We look forward to seeing as many students there as possible for a fantastic evening which will live long in the memory.
Coming up in a few weeks we have the first event of 2014 – the SCASS & YCAG Wine Tasting! Timed to celebrate the release of the December exam results, this event is taking place for a third consecutive year and hopes to be bigger and better than before. The event provides everyone with an opportunity to celebrate exam successes, start a night out with your colleagues, network with other firms and drink a LOT of wine! Wines of different colours, from different countries and made from different grapes will be available as well as some hot and cold buffet food. This year the event will also take place underground in vault that was once used as a large wine cellar so there will be added atmosphere and history as well.
Further to all this, the event provides a great opportunity to further foster the links between SCASS and YCAG (Young Chartered Accountants Group) so that students know that there is a life beyond SCASS. YCAG is a part of SOSCA (ICAEW’s district society) and focuses on those people who are up to 10 years post-qualified in a similar way to how SCASS benefits those who are in their training contracts. They put on a range of events designed to aid networking with other professions, each other and provide access to other support such as CPD through SOSCA.
When: 7:30pm on Friday 24 January
Where: The Undercroft, Simnel Street, Southampton, SO14 2BE (near the bottom of town)
Cost: £5 per head
We hope to see as many of you as possible.
