September 17, 2014

BVWire looks forward to attending the AICPA Forensic & Valuation Services Conference 2014 in New Orleans November 9-11. Last year’s event was terrific—and this one looks to be even better!

New tracks: A total of seven tracks of sessions will be presented, and four of them are new for this year’s conference: Hands-On Valuation, Hands-On Forensics, Cutting Edge, and Industry. For example, the Cutting Edge track will examine issues such as virtual currencies, and the Industry track will present specialized forensic and valuation techniques. The other tracks are: General Valuation, General Forensics, and Litigation.

New training: The AICPA is kicking off a new educational program for up-and-comers in the field of forensics and business valuation. The NextGen FVS Professionals Program is tailored to individuals with fewer than five years of forensic accounting or BV experience. The program is designed to help junior members of a firm develop core competencies, such as professional development, steps to building credibility, fostering relationships, case management, communications, and more.

Also on November 9 will be three preconference workshops: Computer Forensics Bootcamp for Fraud Investigators, Fair Value Measurements in Financial Reporting, and Growing Your Practice and Balancing It All!

See you there!
