Speakers: Gardy Frost and Derrek Quon from Arbutus Financial Services Ltd. 

Arbutus Financial Services offers wide ranging, comprehensive support for individuals and businesses, including: personal financial planning through employee benefits to key person and partnership insurance.   

Arbutus Financial will review the business and put together a customized,  cost effective employee benefits solution.  Employers want simplified solutions, but this does not have to mean uniformity.  Traditionally, flexible benefits have not been available to small and medium size businesses.  Technology has simplified the administration and allowed employees to easily make choices with on-line tools.  This means businesses with as few as 3 employees have access to flexible benefit plans.

Insurance is a vast topic, Arbutus Financial helps businesses and business owners identify key risks.  They can design and implement solutions to protect the business from the “what if’s”, loss of key personnel, executive international travel coverage, etc.


Regional Developer: Maggie Geiser, CPB

The cost of the meeting is free; however, you are responsible for your own meal and beverage.

Dining out with food allergies can be a challenge, but it can be done safely. The best way to stay safe is by being informed and communicating your needs.

Before you go: ‘Be Informed and Inform’. We recommend contacting the restaurant ahead of time and talking to the restaurant manager or Kitchen manager.

At the Restaurant: ‘Communicate’. Talk to the server upon arriving and also to the IPBC regional network chair and explain your food allergies.

Block out time on your calendar for this event right now. Why? Just imagine networking with some of the top bookkeepers in the country. Imagine the chance to be on the fast track to a more lucrative practice, to being a certified professional bookkeeper (CPB) and to receiving greater professional recognition inside and outside of this network.

Regional Meetings are a vital part of that formula for success.

They're a unique chance to combine learning – a guest speaker shares expertise that's sure to make your work a bit easier – with fun and powerful networking.

Attending this meeting qualifies for one Professional Development Credit

Each meeting includes a guest speaker with a Q&A session; a discussion among the attendees about a marketing topic, a challenge someone may be facing, or another topic important to you; and networking. Non-members are welcome to attend two meetings to evaluate IPBC. Afterwards, you must join to participate in Regional Meetings.

Our meetings are "Scent Free” and business casual attire is appreciated. This is a business meeting. Please, turn off your cell phone before entering the room, and sorry no children allowed. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
