Advancing Your Tax Practice Part 2: Grow – Accountants and tax pros are looking for ways to grow their client bases, expand their services and strengthen their presence in the communities in which they live and work. During this session, led by industry expert and thought leader Dawn Brolin, CPA, you will gain powerful insights into new and underserved markets that are ripe for business expansion opportunities. You will also discover ways to more effectively leverage social media, strengthen your brand, and build local and national referral networks.

Advancing Your Tax Practice Part 3: Expand – Tax professionals and small business advisors must stay at the cusp of emerging legislative changes that could impact your clients’ tax strategies … or even the whole of the client’s business plan. In this session, Gail Perry, CPA, editor-in-chief of CPA Practice Advisor, will moderate a panel of tax and government experts who will address the leading legislative and ruling changes that impact your clients. Topics include the Affordable Care Act and the associated complexities it introduces in tax year 2014-15, legislative actions around cyber fraud, and much more.
