BDO USA, LLP invites you to our annual Year End Update.  This free event will provide you with 8 hours of CPE credits, including 2 hours of Ethics CPE. This year is an exciting one as we will be joined by tax leaders and top speakers across the Firm, as well as leaders from our Charlotte office.

With Charlotte’s road to prominence in recent years on the national stage including the DNC, RNC, and the NBA All Star Game, we are happy to welcome John Lassiter and Ned Curran, leaders of Charlotte 2020, for a panel discussion on the impact that the 2020 Republican National Convention will have on the Charlotte region’s current and future economy.

In addition, Mike Mooney, a long-time leader in the motorsports industry, will be joining us with his signature presentation, “Racing with Blind Spots”, a concept that blends communication and trust building into a discussion on leadership and performance.

We are giving away 2 lower-level tickets to the Carolina Panthers Monday Night Game vs the New Orleans Saints on December 17th!
