Join our ACE NextGen SoCal Local "Day-Treat"!

ACE NextGen SoCal Chapter is excited to offer you a unique escape right in your backyard – our first ever "Day Treat," so named because it's a "day retreat" and also a "treat" for the hard working entrepreneur! You can think of our Day Treat as restful retreat disguised as a business meeting. There will be rest and relaxation but also informal workshops and deep dives into your business. Since it's only one day and in SoCal, this is for people with family commitments or other scheduling that make travel difficult, or for those who want a taste of our national retreats before going to one!
