The ACSP 2019 Annual Conference Opening Reception was one for the optical memory books! In a beautiful venue with floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking quaint downtown Greenville, guests were able to network and mingle with peers indoors or out on the patio listening to a jazz trio comprised of three Clemson students. The ACSP was pleased to host its reception at Clemson's state-of-the-art facility at Greenville ONE. This location serves as the location for Clemson graduate-level business programs and centers. Downtown Greenville is a nexus of business activity; each of the entities making their home at Greenville ONE enhances and supports one or more facets of this thriving business community.

While socializing, attendees walked among a spread of elegant hors d’ oeuvres, small plates, charcuterie boards and dessert displays. Guests were spoiled by the creative and mouthwatering menu prepped and prepared by Chef Chris Rosensteel. Chef Chris, just two months prior to the ACSP Opening Reception, was honored by the city of Greenville as he took home top rank in the Greenville Iron Chef Competition.

Even though Chef Chris was right off the heels of winning this prestigious award, he jumped right into planning the perfect menu to wow the pallets of ACSP attendees. We feel honored to have been served by such a notable Chef and wanted you all to share in this excitement with us. We thank each of you that were able to join us for this special evening and hope you enjoyed the ACSP Opening Reception as much as we did!
