5:30pm – 6:45pm Practitioners Symposium/TECH+ TweetUp
Jody L. Padar, CPA, MST, CEO & Principal, NewVision CPA Group
Networking at its finest! Do you follow fellow CPA's on twitter? Would you like to finally meet the men and women behind their handles? This session is for you. Have the opportunity to meet and talk informally with all your twitter friends. Have you not quite figured out how this twitter thing works and are embarrassed to ask for help. Come to this event and meet some of the CPA twitter Rock Stars. Have an opportunity to meet them in person so that when you connect online you can put a face and voice to a tweet. A formal twitter list will be created for all to follow and for anyone who wants a twitter mentor/friend one will be assigned and introduced. Twitter is just electronic networking. This is not a hands on technology event but bring your smart phone and before it is over I'm sure you will have many new CPA friends to follow.
