In March, the Victoria Chapter
hosted a breakfast session on "The Future of Finance" presented by
Chris Kiode, Senior Advisor, Bambora (formerly BeanStream).
Following the presentation was a dynamic panel discussion on
industry perspectives on bitcoins.
On May 24-25, the Chapter joined forces with the CPA BC
Victoria/Southern Vancouver Island Chapter to host a 2-day
financial management workshop. This year's theme was "Beyond the
Crash: Waiting for the Upswing? Managing Uncertainty in Uncertain
Times". Presentation and discussion topics included balancing the
economy and environment, trade, alternative revenue sources,
emerging technology plus sessions on leadership, coaching and
everyone's favourite... accounting!! This was a well-attended
session with over 185 registrants!
