Are you ready for the most in-depth training for accountants, bookkeepers, and CPAs?

Woodard Groups allow accounting professionals and other small business advisors to interact throughout the year at a local level, leading to the development of high impact, long-term professional relationships. In addition to networking opportunities, the local meetings offer in-depth training and the opportunity to cross refer services.

Woodard Groups foster deep, long-term peer relationships between small business advisors and small business owners. By interacting through the year – and at a local level – the professional relationships our members build in local groups are unique and highly dynamic.

The Akron Group consists of Local ProAdvisors committed to learning and growing together for the win-win financial success of both our own firms and our clients. Meetings are focused on peer to peer networking and learning about technology tools and professional development. Most meetings feature a web-based presentation from a QuickBooks related 3rd party App. Scaling New Heights is the high point of our year, as we encourage all members to attend! The pool of speakers for our local meetings always come from vendors who take the time and financial investment to attend SNH.
