VConIntuit's Accounting Professional Virtual Conference - September 24 through 26, 2013.
Just how often do you get to attend high-quality instruction offered by the elite of instructors within the field without paying a dime? Not very often. Even short webinars are frequently $75 to $100 for just an hour or two.
Intuit’s 2014 Accounting Professional’s Virtual Conference gives you 3-full days of high-quality instruction on QuickBooks 2014, QuickBooks Online, and a variety of other professional topics designed for the accountant and advisor using or supporting Intuit products.
Some of the leading instructors from across the country are teaching at this year’s conference. Many professionals and users seek these people out for not only instruction but consultations on the very topics that will be instructed during the VCon.
The best part, this wealth of information and expertise, is absolutely FREE. That is what I said, Intuit’s Virtual Conference to be held on September 24 through 26 is completely FREE, all you have to do is register, and then sign-in to the VCon. Register at:
