ASA-USC Annual Fair Value Conference, Los Angeles
Please mark your calendars for the Ninth Annual Fair Value Conference which will be held on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at the Radisson Midtown at USC at 3540 S. Figueroa Street in Los Angeles. This year’s conference is a joint effort of the American Society of Appraisers and the University of Southern California Leventhal School of Accounting. Please note the slight change of location.

Timely Updates on Topics of Current Interest - The topics represent leading edge topics selected for their importance to professionals that perform financial reporting valuations.
Nationally Recognized Speakers - This is an opportunity to obtain insights from many of the leaders in our profession. In all prior years, we've assembled rosters of nationally recognized speakers.

Exceptional Networking Opportunity - With valuation practitioners from the leading accounting firms and top boutique valuation firms, this continues to be an exceptional networking opportunity.
ASA and AICPA Continuing Professional Education - The conference will provide continuing professional education credit by both the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). This is a timely and cost effective means of obtaining CPE hours for your reaccreditation.
