Succession Planning Think Tank

12:00 pm–1:00 pm ET


Whether you are ready to embrace retirement or just beginning your career, discussions of succession planning can feel daunting and overwhelming. While we hope for an “easy button” to make the process simpler, we must rely on succession planning tools and the accounting community for support as we navigate this territory. Learning from peers’ successes and lessons learned is an excellent step in the succession planning process. This event is an opportunity you do not want to miss. Join us to hear directly from Victoria Martin, CPA, SCEP, CGMA, PFS and Stacee Rash, CPA, partners with Martin Starnes & Associates, CPAs, P.A. in Hickory, as they share their insights with fellow practitioners. This event will cover topics including developing talent within your firm, retention of high performers, and solving leadership pipeline issues. Their perspectives shared collaboratively as firm founder and young professional partner will provide a unique experience for all participants.

The Zoom access link will be provided in the confirmation email. This event is planned and hosted by NCACPA’s Hickory Women’s Initiative Networking Group*This is a non-CPE event
