for a meeting invitation)

Time:                  Noon – 1:30 PM

Agenda:             Madeline Strachota and Cody Lindman will facilitate a roundtable discussion about how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact valuations:  Are you unsure how to approach the impact of the pandemic on valuations? When did the pandemic become known and knowable? How will the crisis affect a company’s operations in the short-run and long-run? Let’s address these questions and more in a guided discussion about the impact of COVID19 on business valuation.

Notes from the March 19th Meeting:  

  • Joe Kenyon and Ginger Knutsen presented regarding fraud schemes, the factors that cause fraudulent behavior, the red flags of fraud, and a few examples of fraud investigations.  Thanks for hosting our remote March meeting and presenting such valuable information!
  • Thank you to everyone who responded to our survey regarding options for a joint Summer Social with the ASA.  We are monitoring the ongoing shifts in restrictions surrounding gatherings and events and hoping to consider a Summer Social later in the summer depending on how government guidelines develop.  Plan to discuss your ideas for a late Summer Social at our upcoming virtual May meeting.
