Nov/Dec 2020: Volume 26, Number 2

Next Meeting:    December 17, 2020

Place: Remote Meeting via Zoom (more information in your meeting invitation)

Time: Noon – 1:30 PM

Agenda: Jeffrey Wright of Corporate Finance Associates will present details from two business sales and meeting participants will submit their guess as to the sale price of each business. Gift cards will be awarded to the attendees who submit the guess closest to the actual sale price.

Remember that in addition to the valuation contest, there will also be an ugly sweater contest.  Pull out the tinsel and reindeer antlers and see if your look can win you the prize!  To participate, you will need to have your video capabilities turned on during the contest.

Please be aware that since this contest will be taking place via Zoom and contest answers will be submitted by private chat to the meeting coordinator, this meeting will be limited to those who can join online and the conference call option will be unavailable.  Instructions for participation will be announced at the beginning of the meeting.

Notes from the October 29th Chapter Business Meeting:  

Our October meeting featured a presentation by Michael Gregory on Reasonable Compensation and the IRS, followed by an informative question and answer period.  We greatly appreciate Mike’s willingness to share his expertise with the MABVP.  Don’t forget you can access four free e-books from Mike by visiting!
