More than 600 CPAs and other financial professionals descended on the Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City for NJCPA’s 12th Annual Convention & Expo on June 14 to 16, 2017. Aptly dubbed “Steadying the Course,” the Convention brought members, nonmembers and academia together to discuss topics ranging from solving school funding issues to battling high state property taxes and New Jersey’s pension liabilities.
Attendees heard leadership tactics and inspirational messages from Bill Rancic, winner of The Apprentice, entrepreneur and author; Captain Larry Brudnicki, the former Coast Guard captain associated with The Perfect Storm rescue (which the book/movie were largely based on); Gene Marks, CPA, The Marks Group, P.C.; and motivational speaker and best-selling author John O’Leary.
New Jersey Senator Steven V. Oroho (R) took part in an economic roundtable discussion with G. Scott Clemons, chief investment strategist at Brown Brothers Harriman, and Michael Symons, statehouse bureau chief for NJ 101.5, which was moderated by Ralph Albert Thomas, CEO and executive director at the NJCPA.
More than 65 exhibitors were on hand to display new virtual solutions, technology enhancements, or improved customer service offerings. Attendees were also treated to evenings of cocktails, dinner, dueling piano shows, and dancing.
