In a unique alternative to the “cattle call” of professional conferences, the Institute of Business Appraisers (IBA) has pioneered a two-track, limited registration teaching model at its annual symposium. At this year’s gathering in Denver, Colorado on June 20-23, 2007, only 100 attendees will participate in the sessions on “Common Errors and How to Avoid Them,” including half-day presentations on how to analyze historical earnings, apply transaction data—and not get tripped up (or tricked) on the witness stand.
The “Masterminds” track—also limited to 100 participants—will cover such advanced topics as S Corp valuations, company-specific risk premia, and federal tax practice. But this track is nearly sold out, according to Grace Clark at the IBA, and the intermediate track is filling up fast. The “early bird” registration (save $100) also expires May 9th.
