Jason Watkins

As a CPA in business and industry, you rely on more than your finance skills to succeed. You are also an integral part of a team charged with creating the financial health of your company. The CPAs in Industry Conference provides unique tools for corporate CPAs, helping you to be the best in your profession. I encourage you to join us for two full days of sessions designed to bring you up to speed on emerging issues, and hone your abilities for personal success.

Whether it's learning the latest on Florida's economic climate, federal/multi-state tax issues and procurement strategies, exploring the potential of a mobile office, or strengthening your leadership skills, you'll leave with what it takes to make a lasting impact on your company. We also want you to share this opportunity with your colleagues. The FICPA offers group discounts for five or more and new attendees will receive a $100 discount. Take the time to invest in your company's and your personal future. See you in Tampa March 23-24, 2017!
