Join us for our October 2019 Chapter Meeting: 
An Ex-Auditor and an Ex-Issuer Walk Into a Bar….
 
Join Aon Equity Services' Amanda Benincasa (ex-issuer and self-proclaimed accounting nerd) and Conor Buckley (ex-Big 4 Auditor and bagpipe enthusiast) for a session on making your year-end more productive, less stressful, and as painless as possible. We will be sharing anecdotes, tips, and what auditors are really looking for amongst all of the changes due to the tax reform, revenue recognition, lease accounting, nonemployee accounting, etc. that has all rolled into this year. You will leave this session feeling more prepared for your year-end, with checklists of things to proactively address, and feeling (hopefully) better about talking with your auditors this year.
