Join Ken McClure, Partner with Givens Pursley, for a discussion of the highlights of developments in the 2019 Idaho legislative session, with emphasis on how they affect businesses in general and the accounting profession in particular.
Every year, thousands of articles are written about building your business, serving your clients and other business topics. And, there seems to be an unlimited supply of conferences, seminars, training – the list is endless – discussing “how to” topics for your business.
As a business leader yourself, you know this information is vital, but how do you keep up?
That's where the ISCPA Power Hour Luncheon Series comes in. Held once a month, join us for a high-level overview of topics that will soon be impacting you, your business and your clients.
