Message from the President

Hello Canton Accountants!

I hope you are all enjoying the longer evenings since the Daylight Savings Time began! Of course this means there will be many more distractions between you and a healthy pace of CPE achievement. In order to alleviate that worry there are a couple event offerings from the IMA which will help you knockout several hours of CPE at once and enjoy yourself in the process!

First is the 41st Meonske conference held at Kent State on Apr 23rd & 24th. Topics include:

  • Financial Reporting Panel

  • Pursuit of Your Best in Leadership

  • COSO 2013 Lessons Learned

  • Conflict Management

  • Ohio Professional Standards and Ethics (

Second, the Annual IMA Conference will be coming to LA in June (20th-24th) and providing up to 40 hrs of top notch CPE (

I hope you can take advantage of these excellent events!

Jesse Allison, CPA, President
