The inaugural conference was held in 2000 in Aspen, Colorado. In 2001 it was moved to Whistler, British Columbia, where it was held for the next six years before returning to Colorado, at Steamboat Ski Resort in 2007 and then back to Aspen in 2008, 2009 and 2010. We are very pleased to be returning to Aspen in 2011.
Clearly, the professional who keeps up to date with recent developments is in a better position to best conduct his or her practice or business. How do we identify problems before they overtake our clients and what steps can be taken to maintain systems at efficient and effective levels? In its twelth year, the conference will create meaningful discussion to find new and creative solutions to problems faced by the professions. The program is designed to provide CPE, CPD and CLE points for participation (however participants should make independent enquiry).
Previous conferences have been well attended by both accountants and lawyers and the cross fertilization, without exception, has professionally extended every presentation. Additionally, the open forum sessions have provided a stimulating interchange beneficial to all delegates.
The Australian Accountants and Lawyers conference 2011 will emulate the high standard of professional content and relaxed friendly environment of previous conferences.
The conference provides a great opportunity to compensate families for the disruption caused by the demands of the busy professional and commercial life. Your family can be actively or passively involved in various aspects of the program.
Early registration is highly recommended. Numbers are limited and places will be allocated strictly in order of receipt of deposit payment. The Gant and airlines have imposed a 31 August 2010 deadline for group bookings. After this date, it may be more difficult to confirm bookings at current costs, so it is important to book early.
As package prices have been negotiated on group fares and hotel rates, immediate confirmation for those wishing to register outside the package cannot be offered however a waiting list will be established and places offered only in the event of the conference package not being fully subscribed. In the event of the conference being fully subscribed all subsequent booking and registration fees received will be refunded.
The conference is promoted by Travelplan Australia Pty Limited.
