Webinars: Best Practices for Bookkeepers

All four parts of this series was amazing!  So much information was given and really assists me in getting on the right track for my very new business.  Part 4 Red Flags confirmed without a doubt that I did the right thing two weeks ago with terminating my client.  This is a weak point for me, trusting too much and being a helper.  It is important for me to change my approach and way of thinking so that I can be the best possible bookkeeper while at the same time protecting myself.

Eileen has been extremely generous with her information and am extremely thankful for that.  IT feels as though I am working with a team and not doing it all on my own.  Thanks IPBC and Eileen.

The same applies for the Working in the Cloud Webinars.  Kerri also has done an amazing job.

Thanks again!!


Wow you guys. Another AMAZING INCREDIBLE event.

In addition to the great content, I have made the most wonderful friends. And every year (even though I don't think it's possible) the conference gets even better than the last. The memories I have from these conferences are something I will always treasure. Hats off to another sensational conference.
You. Guys. Rock. <3

IPBC 2014 Conference Kelowna - I just got back Sunday from the IPBC conference...

Three days of top notch speakers on a large variety of topics and super accommodations.
Sponsors and Booths from every one from Sage One to QBO, Freshbooks, Wave, ADP, Various insurance companies, and applications. Sorry to any one I missed, I'm still processing everything I took in and going over the materials provided.

I was in the Lions Club organization for over 20 year and attended conferences and conventions every year including three international conventions. I must say that this conference ranked right up there with some of the best I've ever attended. The net working, the information, and lets not forget special offers to people in attendance truly made this worth while.

Hats off to the staff and volunteers who made this conference an event...truly, a super job.

"There are firms that have been left behind because of technology. I feel it with bookkeeping, making sure I am using the on-line services and experimenting with new software programms, especially with "I-cloud services". I think we also have to evolve in the manner that we perceive and manage our practices. I believe Ron is right, I think the old model of hourly billing will one day be obsolete. I'd rather be in the front of the pack than the back, struggling to survive." Cindy Kindret, KBS Inc., Calgary AB. 

Thank you!

"I wanted to take the time to thank you all of the IPBC staff for all the work you do for all of us members.  I am so grateful to have won the membership in Las Vegas at the Simply Accounting Conference last year.  This membership which I recently renewed gives me the opportunity to be part of this amazing group of people not to mention all of the benefits of being a member.  Now with Ron Baker and IPBC you have teamed up to give five people an amazing opportunity to become Knowledge Firms and better themselves and their business.  I think you are an amazing organization, thanks again for all the hard work you put into giving us great opportunities to grow our business and ensure we are compliant."Debrah Burleigh, Debrah's Accounting Service

"Good morning IPBC!!!   I wanted to send you this quick note to thank you for a fabulous weekend of learning, inspiration, camaraderie, and fun!!

Cindy Kindret, Calgary AB.

"To all the staff/volunteers at IPBC...

"What an amazing conference"

I learned so much my head is just spinning. Everyone was so friendly and enthusiastic it was so good to be part of the experience. IPBC has an excellent staff and volunteers… truly is a great organization and I am proud to be a member.  Judy Rheault, Kelowna BC, Lifetime Member/Past Board Member

"I received a raise in my salary within weeks of becoming a Certified Professional Bookkeeper"

"Becoming a Certified Professional Bookkeeper has opened a lot of doors for me because it assures my boss and the employees that I have the education and knowledge required to be a successful in my position. I have only one bookkeeper association membership now and encourage everyone to join IPBC so you too can enjoy the many benefits that I have."  Cynthia Dilney, Whitehall Bureau of Canada Limited

"When clients saw I belonged to the IPBC, they went forward."

"I met with a prospective client the other day. When they found out that I was a member of an association they were interested in what I could do for them. IPBC membership tipped the scales in my favor!" 
Kathy Fike, North Vancouver, BC

"My business grew 23%!"

"My business grew 23% as a direct result of my Certified Professional Bookkeeper designation from IPBC!" 
Angela Franklin, Halifax, NS

"Other professionals in the field are a wealth of knowledge!"

"I live in a relatively small town without nearby access to seminars. The IPBC members forum gives me access to the knowledge and advice I need to help my clients."  Carole Holtzman, Quesnel, BC

"I saved $1,200 on my E&O Insurance!"

"I was able to get a great quote on my E&O Insurance because I was a member of IPBC. The insurance savings basically paid for over 3 years of IPBC membership because for every dollar spent on dues, I got $3.29 back in E&O Insurance savings." Maritza Soles, Thornhill, ON


"The Knowledge Guide lets you know what the exam is going to expect from you. That’s not all. There are also several examples to clarify terms and methods. It makes it easier to plan how to study.” Diane Withers

I would like to express my appreciation of the excellent and valuable service provided by IPBC.  I had had a prior bad experience with another association and had delayed at least 3 years in joining IPBC.   Now I am so grateful that I did join IPBC.  The wealth of information imparted in the Webinars, the assistance provided in the Members Forum, and the personal support provided to me, as a sole practitioner working from home, makes the annual fees very worthwhile.   That does not even begin to touch upon the value and support provided by IPBC partners and other IPBC members.  Congratulations on a job well done!  Keep up the good work.
Dominique Dabolczi-Fekete, Bookkeeper and Tax Preparer, I Care Accounting Inc.

"I look forward to the conference, and I have to say that being a member of IPBC has boosted my confidence greatly in being a standalone freelance bookkeeper." Cheryl Nitchie, Victoria, BC.

"I am very happy about my membership with IPBC, When I compare the information and available support from IPBC via the webinars and the forums to what I have received so far from CIB – there is no comparison."
Margaret Somerville, Oshawa ON.

"It has been so exciting since I become IPBC member and CPB not long ago. I have learned a lot from the member's forum. This is a professional association for interested bookkeepers to learn, share and grow."
Brian Lap Yan
