MNCPA’s Management & Business Advisers Conference goes virtual June 23–25

MINNEAPOLIS (May 28, 2020) — The Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants (MNCPA) has transformed one of its premier conferences, the Management & Business Advisers Conference (MBAC20), into a three-day, virtual event June 23–25.  

“We’re very excited to transition MBAC20 from an in-person conference to a multiday virtual event,” said Luke Selvig, CPA, a senior accountant with Boyum Barenscheer and chair of the MBAC20 Task Force. “Now more than ever, financial leaders have to make critical decisions to help their businesses navigate the pandemic. MBAC20 will offer attendees multiple sessions on budgeting, forecasting, technology and leadership topics to enhance their decision-making skills.”

MBAC20 provides CFOs, controllers, financial managers, internal auditors and business advisers the educational experience they need to enhance their leadership and decision-making skills. New features of the virtual conference include:

  • An expansion from a two-day event to three days. MNCPA members can earn up to 24 continuing professional education credits for the price of 16.

  • A la carte pricing options. Registrants can attend the whole conference or select the sessions that fit their busy schedules.

In addition, MBAC20 has added sessions that address the effects of COVID-19 to help decision-makers navigate the economic impacts of the pandemic.
Other must-hear MBAC20 topics and speakers include:

  • Josh Miller provides a deep dive into the up-and-coming Gen Z workforce and how organizations can best prepare for their arrival. Generously sponsored by Salo, LLC.

  • Donny Shimamoto returns to MBAC where he leads multiple sessions covering leading practices in budgeting and planning, cyber incident preparedness and identifying nonfinancial metrics that drive financial results.

  • Jennifer Elder discusses how financial leaders can translate strategy to action using balanced scorecards, as well as getting the most out of KPIs and dashboards.

  • Jonathan Lokhorst inspires everyone to be a leader in a season of disruption.
