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 accounting and bookkeeping industry is changing rapidly: data files are moving from the desktop to the cloud, integrated applications are both streamlining and disrupting our workflow, savvy clients seek real-time numbers and pro-active advice, while Baby Boomers dream of retirement and fewer young people are coming up to replace them. It can be a challenge, but you don’t have to go it alone.

MSP Woodard is a group of small business advisors serving the greater Twin Cities area who seek to foster deep, long-term peer relationships between small business advisors and small business owners. We will hold monthly meetings and each meeting will include an educational component along with ample time to network with other members and attendees. You do NOT need to be a Woodard Network member to attend and small business owners and others are also encouraged to attend!
