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.

Welcome to the Greater Grand Rapids Chapter of the Woodard Alliance. Our goal is to foster advisor-to-advisor networking relationships to share technical information, help cross refer services, exchange business strategies and learn from live and web-delivered training in an interactive group setting. Meetings will include time for networking, presentation and discussion of issues that we face in our business. Members and guests are typically QuickBooks ProAdvisors, bookkeepers, CPAs and other accounting professionals. While we are centric to accountants, we welcome small business owners and professionals from other disciplines committed to helping small businesses thrive. Please join us and see what we are all about!”
