Janover LLC, one of the New York’s leading accounting, tax and advisory firms, recently held its second annual Firm Summit on August 9, 2018 at the Carltun at Eisenhower Park, Long Island.
The Summit brought together employees from its New York City and Garden City offices for a day of learning and social events. The morning session provided an opportunity for firm leadership, led by Mark Goodman, Janover’s managing partner, to re-affirm company core values, share firm goals and introduce new firm initiatives to the 160 employees in attendance. This year the firm’s special guest speaker was Barry C. Melancon, President and CEO of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), who presented on the changes coming for the accounting profession. Mr. Melancon emphasized the impact of new technologies on the profession as well as the importance of providing additional services to clients. The afternoon session served as the firm outing and was devoted to socializing and games.
“The Summit has become an important event for the firm. It’s extremely powerful to gather the entire organization together to communicate goals, clarify challenges and to discuss the future direction of the firm,” Goodman noted. “All in attendance agreed that having a keynote speaker of Barry Melancon’s caliber only underscored how important the firm’s Summit has become,” Goodman added.
