The 21st Annual Business Valuation Conference was a success!

Our speakers devoted many hours to preparing and presenting this year’s topics which included: discount rates, current court rulings, economic trends, bank valuations, and the impact of recent changes on healthcare valuation.

60 people attended the conference at the University of St. Thomas.  Attendees included appraisers, attorneys, CPAs and business brokers. One of our speakers, undaunted by a multi-state winter storm, gave his presentation via webcam.

Look for your CE certificates in the next few weeks.

The 22nd Annual Business Valuation Conference is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, February 21, 2010.  You are invited to submit topic and speaker suggestions to Dennie O’Leary at odennie@hotmail.com
