MNCPA hosts hybrid Management & Business Advisers Conference June 13-15

MINNEAPOLIS (June 7, 2023) — The Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants (MNCPA) presents the Management & Business Advisers Conference (MBAC), a three-day hybrid event held June 13–15. 

“As long as I can remember, MBAC has been my go-to conference to keep up with emerging issues in the profession, as well as an opportunity to reconnect with friends and meet new colleagues,” said Eric Grube, CPA, DBA, associate professor of accounting at Concordia University and chair of the MBAC Task Force.

MBAC provides CFOs, financial leaders, internal auditors and business advisers the educational experience they need to enhance their leadership and decision-making skills. This year, the conference offers a hybrid experience that allows registrants to choose how they attend: hybrid (two days virtual, one in-person), fully virtual (two days virtual, one day livestreamed) or single day (choose which day to attend).
Must-hear MBAC topics and speakers include:

  • Katie Gabriel, CPA, presents multiple panels on talent and management, including an exploration of how to make meaningful connections in a corporate world returning to traditional networking events. Generously sponsored by Salo, a Korn Ferry company.
  • Gene Marks, CPA, unpacks the larger economic forces that impact business and what business owners can do to navigate these external forces.
  • Manjeet Rege, Ph.D., discusses the impact of artificial intelligence, providing an overview of the field and explaining AI’s applicability and use in the industry.
  • Mark Sellner, CPA, JD, LL.M (taxation), breaks down current tax updates, the impact of federal tax legislation, tips for tax planning, as well as ideas on how to identify and assess tax opportunities and pitfalls.
