25th Annual Accounting & Financial Reporting Symposium

The Symposium is designed for corporate financial executives from both private and public companies who desire an update on the more important financial accounting and reporting developments over the past year. The program also will discuss other important topics impacting the responsibilities of the audience.

Those who have attended past sessions have pointed out that one advantage of the program is that it includes technical compliance topics, along with discussions of prominent practices in financial leadership.

You are invited to join keynote speakers Mary Schapiro, the first woman to serve as Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (2009-2012) and Ben Stein, nationally syndicated columnist and television commentator. Other speakers include leading executives from industry, accounting and legal professions who are involved with accounting and financial reporting issues every day. They will address recent technical pronouncements and guidance from the FASB and SEC. In addition, they will share with participants their experiences in dealing with some of the important leadership issues that have helped their companies compete more effectively in today's environment.

Brand new for our 25th Annual Symposium, we are pleased to announce the addition of 4 Pre-Symposium workshops on Wednesday, December 2nd, to enhance your experience at this event.
