Networking Group

AWSCPA Small Firm Networking group

The networking group provides a forum to brainstorm the most pressing business and personal development issues facing women practitioners. In addition to providing an opportunity for continuing education associated with managing and operating a firm, networking group meetings provide a forum for in-depth practice management discussions and an exchange of information on firm operations and professional issues. Members take advantage of the valuable knowledge of their colleagues and share their own knowledge with their peers.
