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.
