It’s conference season! And there is “something for everyone” at the ASA Advanced Business Valuation Conference, Gary Trugman (Trugman Valuation Associates Inc.) tells BVWire. The conference is September 11-14 at the fabulous Boca Raton (Florida) Resort & Club and is being held in conjunction with the ASA 2016 International Appraisers Conference that covers other appraisal disciplines (such as real property and machinery and equipment).
Great mix: Trugman, who is the conference chair, tells us that attendees will find sessions from the very basic (such as how to navigate your valuation report through the accreditation process) to highly technical topics (such as adjusting betas for leverage). What’s more, you’ll find some new speakers and perspectives, such as an investment banker talking about valuations for M&A purposes. Of course, there will also be well-known experts such as Roger Grabowski (Duff & Phelps), Robert Schweihs (Willamette Associates), Nancy Fannon (Meyers, Harrison & Pia Valuation and Litigation Support), Ashok Abbott (West Virginia University), John Finnerty (Alix Partners), and Pablo Fernandez (University of Navarre)—just to name a few.
BVWire congratulates Trugman on putting together a powerhouse agenda, and we will definitely be there! You can check it out and register if you click here.
Extra: This conference recently added a new session on the controversial new proposed IRC Sec. 2704 regs on estate valuation discounts.
