What do you do with all those big-picture questions you keep putting off?
You know, questions like, “What’s this profession going to look like in five or ten years? What will our firm look like? What are the technologies that should be on our radar today, but we don’t know enough about? Which new service lines should we be considering?”
If you’re like a lot of your CPA peers, it probably feels like you never have time to think about questions like these, no matter how important they are to the future success of your career and firm. And even if you did set aside time to consider the future of the profession and how it will impact your firm, you can’t answer these questions on your own.
Future in Focus
The Digital CPA conference is designed to allow you to focus on the issues, trends and technologies that will shape your firm’s future. It’s a smaller, more intimate event that brings together some of the most innovative, forward-thinking minds in the industry, in an environment designed for collaboration, information sharing and networking. This Dec. 4-7 event in Austin, and livestreamed online, will be a hotbed of new ideas and innovation.
Haven’t booked your ticket to Austin yet? Here are five reasons you should.
- Stay a step ahead of trends and technologies
Think about how much things have changed over only the past five years – you’re probably working with technologies today you hadn’t even heard of then. And there’s a good chance your firm has expanded in directions you would not have anticipated a few years ago.
From crypto to client advisory services, these advances were anticipated and discussed in previous years’ DCPA events. You can bet that many of this year’s hot topics will be part of running a successful practice a few years from now. That’s why our theme is “Future in Focus.” At this year’s DCPA, you’ll get a front-row view of what’s next for CPA firms.
- Team time!
The past few years have made it more difficult for your team to connect in person. This event is a prime opportunity for your people to strengthen and support team bonds – in Austin, no less, where good food and fun are around every corner. It’s a chance for your colleagues to recharge, refresh and get inspired. When they return, they’ll be more connected, productive and effective as a team. To make it easier for your whole team to reap the benefits, group discounts are available to save you an extra $150 - $300 per person.
- Choose your own adventure
DCPA already has more than 30 sessions scheduled, with more on the way. It includes three learning tracks – CAS 2.0, Technology and Leadership – with several additional focus areas including Financial Planning & Analysis and Audit & Assurance. That makes it easy for you to build your own agenda, matching your unique insight needs.
Ask anyone who’s been to DCPA before, and they’ll tell you that some of their most important, lasting connections have been made at this event. The Digital CPA conference will be full of like-minded firm and thought leaders facing the same challenges and opportunities you are. This is your best chance to meet them and join our community.
- CPE bonanza
DCPA is a great way for your entire team to expand their knowledge and skills in key areas while earning CPE. Participants can earn up to 16 CPE credits, and on-demand viewing is readily available after the conference is over so you can check out the sessions you missed or those that you attended and want to revisit. While CPE credit isn’t available for on-demand viewing, your team will appreciate revisiting everything they’ve learned so they can put it into action.
