BVWire looks forward to attending the AICPA Forensic & Valuation Services Conference 2015 in Las Vegas November 8-10. Last year’s event was fantastic—and this one looks to be even better! Prof. Aswath Damodaran (New York University Stern School of Business) will be one of the keynote speakers.

Seven tracks: Conference-goers will have a choice of sessions in seven tracks: valuation case study, general valuation, general forensics, hands-on forensics, litigation, cutting edge, and industry. For example, the cutting edge track will include valuing PE/VC investments and virtual currencies. The industry track includes valuing marijuana businesses, pro sports franchises, oil and gas, physician practices, and more. Also, there will be three preconference workshops on November 8: Fair Value Workshop, Surviving Cross-Examination, and the NextGen FVS Professional Workshop.

NextGen training: Last year, the AICPA kicked off a new educational program for up-and-comers called the NextGen FVS Professionals Program, tailored to individuals with fewer than five years of BV or forensic accounting 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. The program has been enhanced this year by offering three optional paths: testifying path, forensic path, or valuation path. We hope to see you there!
