Highlights of the NSA 70th Annual Meeting
The National Society of Accountants (NSA) held its 70th Annual Convention and Expo August 19-22, 2015, at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The event drew accountants and tax professionals from across the United States and Canada for continuing education and networking opportunities. Leading industry speakers were onsite to address critical topics including ethics, practice management, accounting, and risk management, including: Walter Davenport, Chairman of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and NASBA President and CEO Ken Bishop; and Karen Hawkins, who will conclude a six-year stint as the Director of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Office of Professional Responsibility.
Attendees had the opportunity to earn up to 14 hours of continuing professional education (CPE).
On the lighter side, social activities highlighted some of unique attractions in Vancouver. The event started with a Vancouver harbor dinner cruise aboard the Magic Spirit and later in the week included a tour of Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge. For those who arrived early, an optional tour to Victoria and Butchart Gardens was available.
