24th 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. Speakers are leading executives from industry, accounting and legal professions who are involved with the 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 more important leadership issues that have helped their companies compete more effectively in today's environment.
