The more the merrier!  Please use the flyer that was sent to members as a tool to invite colleagues to our most popular event!

Notes from the October 17th Meeting:  

  • Welcome Michael Bredahl and Joah Franzoy!  These two new members’ applications were approved by vote at our October meeting.  We are happy to have both of them join us!  
  • Our October meeting featured a guided discussion on various topics relating to the business valuation industry.  It was a wonderful opportunity to learn about the practices and perspectives of colleagues and be introduced to some valuation resources.  We are always interested in gathering topics for future discussions or presentations.  Please submit any recommended topics to Natalie or Guy.  Contact information is below.
