Friends with business interests including accounting, I hope to see you at the next meeting, Wednesday, December 28, from 7AM to 9AM, Panera Bread, 159th & Harlem Ave., Orland Park   (Chicago South Chapter)

There are a dozen similar groups in the Chicagoland area. All the meetings are further publicized at  At the web site for Chapter Education and Networking events, drill down to Connections, Member-Communities, Chapters, Chapter Education Events (expand)  Of course. you are welcome anywhere else you choose to join us, too.  Please share.

Let’s get even better acquainted.  Networking is a never-ending, ever-growing set of opportunities.  These networking group meetings are for CPA’s — and anyone else who can stand us.    Everyone is welcome anywhere you can join us.  Let’s see how we can help each other, more.  If you had been in my shadow for just the last couple of years, you could have added at least 1000 new names to your contact database.  Would that help you, a colleague, customer, vendor, employee, client, family member, friend, student or someone else that you know?

This is about inclusion and opportunity.  If you know someone else who should be invited, please bring him/her along.  This is an opportunity for participation, rather than just coming to listen to someone speak.  The format of these meetings will be continuing, shared by meetings at, altogether, twelve very successful venues sponsored by the Illinois CPA Society Chapters.  The program agenda will run during the middle hour with time for informal exchange before and after.  Panera Bread sells delicious coffee and breakfast items.  There will be no other cost (but your time) for membership in this group. 


I have functioned as a Business and Media Consultant over the past sixteen years and spent many years developing my capacity to function in our ever evolving use of technology, communication, education and training.
