Profit is not a Four-Letter Word
7 CEs, 8 speakers, $119 members, $159 non-members

Remember when you were in graduate school and you looked forward to helping people because it was the right thing to do?  Then you worked in agencies and eventually had a private practice and you thought: “Hey, there is an actual financial piece to all of this.” And you thought “this sure wasn’t covered in graduate school!” Here is your chance to learn from eight counselors who care about their clients AND need to make a living.  Another added benefit…when you make more money, you can create more pro-bono slots in your schedule.  These counselors all have an entrepreneurial spirit. Listen to their strategies and learn how to combine the ideal and the practical.  After all, profit is not a four-letter word!

Morgan Spurlock is Opening Keynote Speaker for ACA's 2014 Conference And Expo

by Ashwini Yelamanchili | Sep 05, 2013
Morgan Spurlock is an award-winning writer, director, and producer best known for his immersive explorations of the social issues that both directly and indirectly shape the choices and life paths of our clients, students, colleagues… and ourselves. As a man with his finger on the pulse of a rapidly changing society, Spurlock will share experiences, insights, and reflections from the front lines of American culture.
Morgan Spurlock, Academy Award-Nominated Director of Super Size Me and Documentary Filmmaker
March 27, 2014
8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.



His first feature length film, Super Size Me, played in more than 100 countries, influenced school lunch programs across the nation, empowered millions to change their own eating habits, and eliminated super size options from the world’s largest fast food chain. The film was also used by senators, congressmen, and lobby groups as a call to action for multiple food and education related causes.

Other accomplishments include: the critically acclaimed FX program, 30 Days, which dealt with such polarizing issues as the minimum wage, prison reform, abortion, and gun control; Where in the World is Osama bin Laden?, which was named “one of the most important films of the year” by the Islamic Society of North America; The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3-D on Ice!; the film adaptation of the best selling book Freakonomics; and POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, a documentary about branding, advertising, and product placement, which was funded by branding, advertising, and product placement, and made some serious points about the ubiquity of branding in our daily lives. 

In April 2012, Spurlock’s released the documentary, Comic-Con Episode IV – A Fan's Hope, which follows a group of attendees around the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con. A month later, his doc Mansome hit theaters, which features an all-star cast of commentators including Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, and Zach Galifianakis who hilariously opine on the grooming habits of the 21st century man.

In 2013, Spurlock returned to TV as host and producer of the CNN original series, Inside Man. Each week Spurlock provides an insider’s view into rarely-seen sectors of American life that include gun lovers, marijuana growers, migrant farm workers, and end-of-life caregivers.
