2020 Nuts and Bolts Workshop

We are pleased to present our annual Nuts and Bolts workshops. 

This year we have broadened the workshop into two distinctive days, "the Wheels" for all officers with a finance component to their role and "the Gears" tailored for finance officers.

We will discuss the new revenue recognition and lease standards, along with the foreshadowed changes to the regulations within the workshops.
