MGI Area Coordinator for MGI North America, Joe Tarasco presented “Navigating the Business of Public Accounting” - where partners, managers, and directors discussed the key issues they face in managing a firm in the public accounting profession, both at present and in the future.  A closer look was taken at the MGI North America members’ survey results, examining both member and non-member firms’ best practices and highlighting the need for open dialogue and communications amongst members.
