CPA Day at the Capitol is one of the most important events for CalCPA members to attend. During each legislative session, bills are introduced that impact you, your clients or your employer. As the business climate continues to change and new legislators take office, we need to build bipartisan relationships with those who share our commitment to the CPA profession. Take a proactive approach to increasing your voice in the political arena and help policymakers understand the issues facing California CPAs.
A startup begins with a great idea, but seasoned entrepreneurs and CPAs know that after the great idea comes the challenges of building a successful business. From patent issues to payroll taxes, business owners and the accounting professionals who advise them need to know more than just how to positively impact the bottom line. Funding options, employment issues and selecting the right business advisers are only a few of the hot topics that will be covered at the 2014 Startup Business Conference. Designed to meet the needs of both business owners and the professionals who partner with them, you won’t want to miss learning the secrets in the world of startups.
CPE: 8 hours
