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.
