Sue talked about the new changes to the tax code, and how the IRS will need to interpret prior to implementing. For anyone who wants to discuss how the changes will impact their tax situation, Schram & Associates will be booking time separately from tax preparation appointments. Sue also shared how the business at Schram & Associates has expanded in the nine years she’s been working with Frances, and how that translates to increasing staff and implementing new procedures to maintain production of quality work.
In the absence of our second speaker (Kevin was unavoidably absent), we shared changes we’re implementing in 2018. We had a couple of common threads: 1) Networking to grow our businesses, and 2) Improving systems in place to maintain quality service.
Next speakers Rick & Agueda. The following week will be Val and Levi.
Referral slips were turned in to John. John was the winner.
Meeting was adjourned at 8:31 am.
