Collaborate 2015 Conference

McKonly & Asbury is pleased to present our Collaborate 2015 Conference! This third annual conference features a variety of topics and speakers, including general sessions and breakout sessions for you to choose from.

Keynote Address featuring Mark Everson, former IRS Commissioner, and Rick Lazio, former U.S. Congressman:

If you joined us in past years, you will remember one of our keynote speakers, Mark Everson, former IRS Commissioner and alliantgroup Vice Chairman (and currently running for President of the United States!). We are pleased to welcome Mark back again this year, and joining him will be Rick Lazio, former U.S. Congressman and alliantgroup Director. Mark and Rick will be presenting an insider’s perspective on the IRS, Capitol Hill, and how developing legislation and tax policy will impact you and your clients in the coming year. It’s a presentation you won’t want to miss!

More highlights of our Collaborate 2015 Conference include:

  • Sessions focusing on current issues that attendees face every day
  • A variety of topics, including an economic outlook; legal, healthcare, tax and audit updates; and much more
  • 7 Continuing Professional Education Hours
  • 5.5 Continuing Legal Education Credits
  • Breakfast, lunch, and networking
  • Reception after the day’s sessions

In the words of last year’s attendees:

  • “Excellent format – there’s something for everyone!”
  • “General and breakout sessions gave me useful information I needed to run my business.”
  • “You’re doing an excellent job of picking topics. Keep up the great work!”
  • “The entire conference from the presenters to the facility was very well done.”

With a variety of topics and speakers planned, we believe Collaborate 2015 will appeal to a diverse group of attendees and will leave attendees with practical, every day solutions to elevate your business in 2015!
