MACPA Seminar Series

by Ren Carlton

I’m very excited to announce that I have been asked by the Michigan Association of CPAs (MACPA) to create a series of seminars designed for CPAs, Controllers, and CFOs.  Each seminar will include presentations by me, as well as our expert speaking partners.  Be a part of this exciting opportunity to further your knowledge in the accounting and financial field.  For more information and to register, visit the DAS Events page.

Making the Transition to CFO:  Learn the skills necessary for CPAs and Controllers to become effective CFOs.  This session is designed to help accountants let go of the details, focus on the big picture, and become visionaries for their organizations.  It is also a great program for CPAs looking to add CFO services as part of their offering.  April 18, 2013 – Troy

Optimizing Your Accounting Staff:  Accountants have unique strengths and weaknesses.  An improperly run accounting team is like a disease.  It makes it difficult for management to focus on its goals, and it can inhibit an organization from executing on its business plan.  A diseased accounting team adversely affects every area of an operation; a healthy finance department optimizes every area of a business.  Whether you are a manager of a public accounting firm or a CFO in industry, this session will help you create a healthy accounting team that helps move your organization forward, instead of holding you back.  May 22, 2013 – Livonia & June 26, 2013 – Kalamazoo

CFO and Controller – Best Practices and Trends:  Learn what the best CFOs and Controllers do to maximize their value to their organizations, as well as advance their careers.  Discover what it takes to become a fully integrated part of your organization’s management team. Specific topics include staffing, banking and financing, raising capital, crisis management, healthcare and workers compensation, information technology, employment, retirement planning, etcJune 18, 2013 – Sterling Heights & June 27, 2013 – Kalamazoo
