UHY LLP and UHY Advisors (“UHY”), a leading professional services organization, gathered their leadership from across the United States to the Motor City on Tuesday and Wednesday October 23-24 for the 2018 National Leadership Conference in downtown Detroit. The meeting included members representing all UHY offices across the United States who came together to discuss how to embrace change in the industry while serving clients, educate themselves on the newest industry leading practices and join their colleagues in the U.S. as they experienced the economic revitalization of Detroit.
“UHY’s National Leadership Conference this year was memorable for several reasons”, said Rick David, chief operating officer of UHY Advisors. “Governor Rick Snyder, the first governor to hold a CPA license, was the keynote presenter, and our national meeting was a precursor to our international network meeting also being held in Detroit. In addition to Governor Snyder, we were joined by Barry Melancon, Accounting Today’s most influential person in accounting and the longest serving president and CEO in the 131 year history of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Marc Huffman, chief operating officer of BlackLine Corp., Rob Dube, author of Do Nothing, Tasneem Khokha, of GrowthPlay and several industry-renowned consultants, C-suite executives and business leaders.”
“Combining our National Leadership Conference with the UHY International meeting in Detroit is a great opportunity for both our national and international partners to gather, collaborate and learn” said Tony Frabotta, chief executive officer, UHY Advisors. “Hosting these meetings in tandem in Detroit, the Motor (and Comeback) City, is a testament to the entrepreneurial prowess, growth, grit and community focus that UHY embodies in an international capacity.”
UHY International is hosting their International Member Meeting concurrently in Detroit starting on Wednesday, October 24, 2018.
Outside of business meetings, members and guests visited Detroit staples such as, The Detroit Institute of Arts, The Motown Museum, The Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village, among many other cultural and historical venues.
