Looking Ahead…

The Annual Board Member’s Meeting will be held in July or August. Your comments, suggestions, and concerns are welcome – email Dennie O’Leary

Annual Conference: Who is available to serve on the Planning Committee? Our kick-off meeting wil be held in early August. The conference task force consists of current presidents of NCCIBA, ASA, and NACVA (John Heidebrecht, Clay Shultz, and Rick Berning), along with Joe Kenyon and Bill Herber. BV-22 is confirmed for Wednesday, February 1, 2012 at the University of St. Thomas on the Minneapolis Campus. Keep your eyes open for good topics and/or speakers. We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker will be Rob Slee, with an update on the Cost of Capital.

Update on UST Library Resources: Several members have recently used the publications and subscription services at UST. Laura Hansen, the current director of the business valuation collection, recently developed an on-line guide to resources for the business valuation community: UST-Business Valuation. The collection has expanded over the last ten years. If you have questions about hours, access to on-line resources, or the permanent collection, feel free to call Laura at 651.962.4664. Identify yourself as an affiliate of UST from the business valuation community and indicate in which group you hold a current membership (ASA, NCCIBA, NACVA, etc.). No formal ID card is required, but not all staff members are familiar with our arrangement – don’t give up! Feel free to mention our contacts at UST (Herb Touselfy, Susie Eckstein, Tom Hamilton). The librarian on duty will give you an overview of the layout, set you up at a computer terminal, and log on. Following your visit, feel free to email Dennie or John with comments and/or suggestions.
