Chapter Notes

Welcome to the Salt Lake City Chapter!

Q1 2019 Meeting THANK YOU--

Thanks to all those who joined us for the Q1 2019 meeting; special thanks to Extra Space for hosting and to RGP for presenting! We had a great turnout with over 20 people. In addition, the webcast was very impressive and informative. We had great food, great networking, and some great topics and discussion with RGP presenting and moderating a discussion on hot topics in accounting.

Q2 2019 - **SALT LAKE CITY HOSTING NATIONAL MEETING**

We are lucky and fortunate to be hosting the SEC Professionals National meeting for Q2 2019; Overstock.com has gladly volunteered to host the meeting, and it should be fun to showcase ourselves and our chapter to the entire nation of SEC Professionals! See below for a description of the meeting:

"The struggle to achieve both speed and accuracy in the financial close process can be challenging. Major stakeholders want the information as fast as possible, but they also need data they can trust. Those working on the close may feel as if they're in a catch-22: pushed to work faster, but with no errors. During this meeting, members will share how they improved the efficiency and effectiveness of their close process by improving internal communications and leveraging technology.

"After this meeting, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify pain points in their financial close process
  • Explain tactics or methods other members used to improve their financial close process
  • Determine ways to leverage technology to simplify and expedite the financial close process
  • Develop performance metrics to evaluate your close process

"One CPE credit will be offered, compliments of Workiva, our national sponsor. Please invite your colleagues to join us—the content will be especially valuable for your colleagues involved in the financial close."

We look forward to seeing everyone; since this meeting is the National meeting, we will not do a delayed broadcast (like we normally do), but will instead be holding the meeting live from Overstock.com!

Please stay tuned as we get further details finalized; the meeting is  on Tuesday, May 21 at Overstock.com (799 Coliseum Way, Midvale, UT 84047) starting at 10:15AM MST. 

Thanks everyone--
