According to ASA marketing manager Betty Snyder, the attendance rate for this year’s confab is at an all-time high; and there are still seats available in most sessions and seminars.

Of particular interest to business valuators: the single, all-day intensives from the Center for Advanced Valuation Studies (CAVS), including the “Cost of Capital,” with Roger Grabowski, ASA (Duff & Phelps, LLC); “Valuations for Financial Accounting (FASB 141/142/144)” with Susan Heisey, ASA (D.L. Heisey & Co., Inc.); and “Making Valuation Pay,” with Warren Miller, ASA (Beckmill Research).
Speaking of Warren Miller, don’t miss his article on valuation and strategy: A New Framework for Gauging Unsystematic Risk, in the August issue of the Business Valuation Update (BVU).
