How did CarolinasUnite come about?

SCACCA and NCAF first partnered in 2008 to bring together animal welfare professionals for education and networking.  In 2013 the two organizations formed what is now known as CarolinasUnite.  This was an effort to make a bigger impact  and offer higher quality training for industry professionals.  Over the years, the combined efforts of SCACCA and NCAF have attracted more a more diverse vendor base and high quality speakers for attendees.  In addition, this partnership allows us to leverage our resources and offer attendees the opportunity to learn in a beautiful environment, away from the stresses of the job.  The shared knowledge and efforts of the two organizations has created improved training opportunities for professionals in both states.
