FCG Holds University for BV & IP Engagements
The Financial Consulting Group held its FCG University, Sept. 9-10 in Dallas, to provide targeted CPE to its members in the area of intellectual property and related services.
'FCGU is a terrific program for our members because it delivers a hands-on, team approach to solving complicated IP issues for their client base,' says Larry R. Cook, CPA/ABV, CBA, president of FCG and his own firm in Houston. 'When attendees leave this program and return to their firms, they will take with them a skill-set that provides added-value to typical CPE they receive from other sources.'
FCG is an organization of valuation professionals working within the accounting profession. Many of the most recognized names in the valuation industry are affiliated with FCG member firms, and many members also retain the ABV (Accredited in Business Valuation) designation from AICPA.
Many FCG members are on the roster to speak at the upcoming AICPA Business Valuation Conference, Nov. 12-14, in Miami. FCG also will have a booth at the exhibitor show.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
