SEC Room Block Extended Until Friday, July 1st!

The Sandestin CPE Retreat is now the Summer Education Conference (SEC). Partnering with the Society of Louisiana CPAs has created this fun and exciting SEC collaboration! Stay and play at one of five beautiful properties within the Sandestin property. Room blocks close Friday, July 1, 2016 >>

Since 1976, the Alabama Society of CPAs has taken CPE to the beach. The week long retreat does not just revolve around education, but memorable experiences, like: the Annual ASCPA Beach Party, an opening reception with live music, an annual golf tournament looking over Baytowne’s shores, a fishing tournament off the coast, and now a partnership with the Louisiana Society of CPAs. With room for work in the morning and play in the afternoon, this family-friendly event offers significant time for networking. See the agenda and register now to get the Early Bird Special >>


Taking the Self Taught Excel User to the Next Level in Montgomery on July 27th
  • Have you ever seen someone execute a few keystrokes in Excel to make it do something that takes you several minutes to accomplish? Do you wish you knew those shortcuts?

  • Wouldn’t it be great if you could lock the cells you have formulas in so other users didn’t overtype them with values? 

  • Do you ever have a column of numbers foot improperly – off by a penny or two? Do you ever run a calculator tape on your Excel workbooks before showing them to others?


You can get help with all these issues by attending “Taking the Self Taught Excel User to the Next Level” on Wednesday, July 27, 2016 at our training facility in Montgomery, AL.  This 8-hour session is being presented by Karl Egnatoff.  Karl, a member with Phoenix Beach, has been presenting CPE for over a decade and is one of the most highly rated and well respected instructors delivering material today.

Northern Alabama and Mobile Market Outlook from PNC Bank

Published quarterly, PNC's Regional Economic Reports provide analysis and forecasts of key economic and financial trends in the 33 major market areas within PNC's core retail footprint.

Northern Alabama Market Outlook, 2016 2nd Quarter Report: Job growth in the Northern Alabama market, which includes six metro areas stretching from Montgomery north to Huntsville, quickened slightly in late 2015. Healthcare, education and professional services have been significant and reliable growth drivers. Read more from the Northern Alabama Market Outlook >>

Mobile Market Outlook, 2016 2nd Quarter Report: Mobile’s economy gained some momentum in the second half of 2015 but its growth remains anemic. Sluggish population growth is a weight on aggregate demand and on economic growth overall. The collapse of oil prices since 2014 has weighed on demand for steel produced in the area.
